EDF and EnBW start extension work at the hydroelectric power station

Iffezheim, Germany, July 20, 2009 — EDF Energy and Energie Baden-Wurttemberg AG laid the first stone of a new 38 MW turbine at the Iffezheim hydroelectric power station on the Rhine.

The Iffezheim power station is owned and operated by Rheinkraftwerk Iffezheim GmbH, a company in which EDF and EnBW are equal shareholders. It will have a total capacity of 148 MW, once the turbine comes on stream at the beginning of 2012.

The enterprise bears witness to the successful cooperation between EDF and EnBW, Baden-Württemberg’s leading energy company and Germany’s third largest producer, and will allow both groups to develop synergy in hydraulic engineering. The venture is also an example of the productive collaboration enjoyed for many years with OEW, a group of local authorities in Baden-Württemberg and a joint shareholder with EDF in EnBW.
