Date: Monday, 11 February
Time: 11:30 – 16: 00 h
Location: NUON Magnum Power Plant Eemshaven (transport from Groningen Central Station is included)

Not far from the city of Groningen, at Eemshaven seaport you will find a lot of energy related companies with interesting stories to tell. One of those companies, NUON, will today open the doors for an exclusive visit by our Energy Community of Young Researchers!

So, do you want to see what the Magnum Power Plant looks like? How this Power Plant is a part of the energy transition? And learn about the latest techniques?

This is your chance: limited seats available so make sure to register (first come, first served)!

Magnum Power Plant and its future developments
The NUON Magnum Power Plant is a modern and efficient power plant with three steam- and gas-turbines, recently built in 2012. This power plant is also used for research in collaboration with the TU Delft. This research focuses on the possibilities to transform the extra capacity of wind and solar into hydrogen by using electrolysers. This hydrogen is to be stored in a ‘battolyser’ so the hydrogen can be reused in the Magnum Power Plant again. In addition NUON, Gasunie and Equinor are exploring the possibilities to use blue hydrogen as a fuel for the Magnum power plant, with the ambition to have one out of the tree units run on hydrogen by 2024.
