RWE has taken over the Dils Energie gas project from Advanced Power, along with the site and permits processes  required for the construction of a 920 megawatts (MW) gas-fired power plant in Dilsen-Stokkem, at the Dutch border in the Belgian part of Limburg.

Roger Miesen, Chief Executive Officer and Chief Operating Officer of RWE Generation SE
“The takeover of the Dils Energie project fits in perfectly with RWE’s ambition to further strengthen our position within the Belgian market. In the coming years, the energy system in Belgium will change drastically. With the phasing out of nuclear power plants, a growth of renewable energy is planned, supported by new, flexible gas plants. RWE is active in both. The Dils Energie project gives us the opportunity to use our extensive experience in developing and operating gas-fired power plants in Germany, the UK and the Netherlands to help create a stable and reliable energy system in Belgium.”

Roger Miesen, CEO of RWE Generation
