EAE Energy Excursion | Visit the Power Plant of RWE in the Eemshaven

In 2015, in Eemshaven, Groningen RWE put a new ultramodern power plant into operation, with a capacity of 1,560 megawatts. This new power plant is to play an important role in the energy supply for the Netherlands in future years, in order for energy supplies to remain reliable and affordable. For that reason, ten years ago the Dutch government designated the Eemshaven area as a site for new power plants. RWE built an ultramodern coal-fired power plant. The plant has been operational since the summer of 2015.

Register here!

*Since there are only limited places available, we will confirm your application in the first week of March. Later applications will be put on a waiting list.

But not only electricity is produced at the power plant, also the plaster ceiling in your home. That seems a bit strange, but can easily be true of the fact that plaster is created from fuel gases caught during the preparation of coal.

Throughout this excursion, you will have the opportunity to get to know RWE and Eemshaven Power Plant, their responsibilities and activities through various presentations, and a visit to the power plant itself. During the day, you will have every opportunity to ask questions or discuss future career opportunities.

The program will include:

So if you would like to find out what it takes to provide 3.5 million households with electricity at the Eemshaven power station, about the challenges that RWE faces, and want to gain knowledge about producing plaster components and building materials, you certainly cannot miss this excursion!
