Küstenkraftwerk Coastal Power Plant Open Day on June 12th, 2022: Visiting the Kiel Coastal Power Plant, the most modern gas engine cogeneration plant in Europe on the east bank of the Kiel Fjord between Mönkeberg and Wellingdorf.
For the first time since commissioning in January 2020, an open day has taken place at the Kiel coastal power plant. On Sunday, visitors were allowed for the first time to enter the area of the otherwise well-protected area on which the coastal freight works is located. There was also a varied program for the whole family, including live music, a bouncy castle, an e-kart track, food trucks, a demonstration by the rescuers from the Kiel fire brigade and much more.
The coastal power plant is operated by Stadtwerke Kiel. The power plant supplies district heating and electrical energy for around 70,000 households and went into operation in November 2019 and has since replaced the Kiel community power plant right next door, a coal-fired power plant that generated electricity for more than 60,000 households from 1970 to 2019 with imported hard coal.
The “inside” of the power plant could also be visited on the open day. However, access was limited and a queue of around 150 meters had already formed in front of the door in the late morning. Was the queue and the associated waiting time too long for you? But then watch out, because the Stadtwerke Kiel offer free guided tours through the coastal power plant at irregular intervals.
More about the coastal power plant and contact for a visit can be found on the Stadtwerke Kiel website:
Approach to the coastal power plant
The Kiel Coastal Power Plant is located at Hasselfelde 30 in 24149 Kiel. Various access options were available. If you wanted to drive to the Open Day at the coastal power plant, there were free parking spaces available. The coastal power plant can be reached by bus by getting off at the “Hasselfelde” stop. Or you can take the SFK ferry. In this case you had to take the F1 ferry line to the Mönkeberg pier and walk or cycle the last stretch.
