Germany's Uniper to restart coal-fired power plant as Gazprom halts supply to Europe

Aug 22 (Reuters) – German utility Uniper SE on Monday said it will start producing electricity for the market at its Heyden 4 hard-coal-fired power plant as a three-day halt in Russia's gas supplies to Europe may cause disruptions to power supply.
Heyden 4 will start producing electricity from Aug. 29, until April 30, 2023, the utility said in a statement.
The "envisaged operation of Heyden 4 will be restricted due to limitations on the rail transportation capacity of hard coal to the site, which might get lifted once additional transportation capacity becomes available," Uniper said in a statement.
