Creating chemistry for a sustainable future
This is not just an end in itself, because BASF’s own customers, e.g. the automotive industry, signal a rapidly growing demand for eco-friendly products in their supply chain, too. The site's CCPP power plant ensures a flexible energy supply and was now modernized as a brownfield project.
While one power line ensured the uninterrupted power and heat supply of the site, the second power line was modernized. "An open heart surgery" as all project members describe the task.

In 2019, BASF Schwarzheide engaged Siemens Energy to carry out a "brownfield exchange project". From 2020 to 2022, parts of the existing combined cycle power plant were modernized without interrupting ongoing operations. One of the two gas turbine lines were refurbished while the second gas turbine ensured the site's power supply.
