Expert guides and a multimedia information centre help visitors to understand how the high-tech plant works. The crowing glory is a ride to the 161 metre high observation tower. From here, you can see across the nearby Welzow-Süd surface mine and the Lusatian Lake District being created all around.

Building work on the powerful double-unit plant in the Schwarze Pumpe industrial estate took five years. It was officially taken into operation in 1998. Each day, around 36,000 tonnes of rough lignite from the Welzow-Süd surface mine are used to produce energy. The plant supplies not only electricity but also process steam and district heating for the region. 

Guided tour: If you want to take a tour of the power plant, you must register in advance. From April to October there is the possibility on Saturdays (minimum number of participants required). Individual group tours can also be requested at the visitor center.

Tip: On weekdays you can have a lunchtime snack like the power planters do in the company canteen!
