According to a short note on its transparency website, two 200 MW topping gas turbines at its Weisweiler power plant will be available to the market until further notice.

In September, RWE already de-mothballed its 355 MW Gersteinwerk-G gas-fired power plant for flexible operation this winter until the end of March.

In August, RWE delayed the planned mothballing its 430 MW gas-fired Moerdijk-2 power plant in the Netherlands by one year to the end of the first quarter of 2019.

The reason is improved margins for gas-fired power stations, while the company expects a decline in margins at its hard coal-fired facilities, it said during its first-half of 2017 earnings presentation in August.

RWE will present Q3 earnings next Tuesday.
