POINTS OF VIEW OF ENERGY TRANSPORT IN THE SELECTION OF SITES FOR COAL-FIRED POWER STATIONS

ASPEKTE DES ENERGIETRANSPORTES BEI DER STANDORTWAHL VON STEINKOHLENKRAFTWERKEN

After indicating the quantities of coal used for public power supply, the author shows for which regions the distance to the coal fields has an important effect. The siting question of a 2X600 Mw power station fired with Ruhr coal for power supply to the Rhein-Neckar region in West Germany is investigated. It is shown what facilities are today available for transport by overhead line, rail and inland shipping, the capital and material requirements for new means of transport, the consumption of energy for the transport of energy, and what space is taken up by the transport routes.
