We turn major projects into successes. As experienced general contractor, we engineer and build quickly controllable power plants and combined heat and power generation plants on the basis of gas turbines, gas and steam turbines, engines and boilers for different areas of application with fuels such as biomass, gas, coal and oil.
There is no such thing as a power plant "off the shelf". One of our strengths is the ability to keep developing intelligent solutions that meet the challenges of our customers. We will provide you with the entire power plant from a single source. We engineer everything from the design to the implementation, procure all components and handle all aspects of the power plant to the turn-key commissioning with our own project management team. We optimally implement plants according to your needs – because we are not beholden to any supplier or process.
Heat and electricity from one source – flexible and environment-friendly.
No matter which fuel is used: Our plants are designed to be flexible and utilise the principle of combined heat and power generation, which achieves a high degree of efficiency by jointly generating power, heat and refrigeration. We also have comprehensive expertise in the latest processes, such as power-to-heat, thermal storage and concentrated solar power (CSP). We optimise efficiency and flexibility and, as a result, the profitability and environment-friendliness of power plants. We achieve this goal not just with newly constructed plants but also when modernising existing ones.
Flexibly into the future: We engineer and erect highly flexible power plants that make control energy and heat extraction available to municipal and commercial customers – as partial lots or turn-key ready.
Kraftanlagen München has its own process with an open volumetric receiver and air as the work medium. It is inexpensive, environment-friendly and, thanks to our storage technology, supplies power and heat from solar energy – highly flexible and on demand.
Get the most out of it! State-of-the-art storage technologies improve the degree of efficiency and increase the flexibility of power plants. We engineer and implement solutions specifically tailored to your needs.
Whether in an existing facility or when built from scratch, your project is in the right hands with us every step of the way. We are the right general contractor for you – from approval engineering to the plant's handover.
Use the energy from wood! Our biomass power plants and heating plants, which are fired with renewable fuels, provide CO₂-neutral power and heat regardless of the weather.

As general contractor, Kraftanlagen München erected a state-of-the-art gas engine heating power plant with combined heat and power generation at the Kiel Fjord.
The location at the Baltic Sea requires extremely flexible technology: Due to the high share of wind power in the grid, the power plant has to be able to feed its entire output into the local grid in a very short period of time in order to balance the fluctuations of the power generated from wind and solar energy.
The power plant can be ramped up from zero to 190 MW within just five minutes – a feat made possible by 20 gas engines that can each be individually controlled. The plant also supplies up to 190 MW of district heating: It is either fed into the public district heating network of the city of Kiel or, if the heat network has low demand, it is stored temporarily in a storage module and available later. In that way, power and heat generation can be decoupled at different times. That allows the power to be generated when it is needed in the grid.
Thanks to its modular design, the power plant cannot only optimally compensate grid fluctuations but also supply the power for sale on the balancing energy market. If there is too much power in the grid, the power plant will store the excess electrical energy as heat. In times of fluctuating power generation and the current lack of power storage capacities, this power-to-heat technology is a flexible and necessary solution.
The power plant project, which is the only one of its kind in Europe, is future-oriented and exemplary for the successful implementation of the energy transition by using highly efficient combined heat and power generation.
