A unique and sustainable power plant

In the north of Groningen the ultramodern Magnum Multifuel Power Plant will be build by NUON. When completed Magnum will occupy 40 to 60 hectares of land in the industrial sea harbour of Eemshaven. The complex of buildings and installations will reach up to 90 meters high and will stand as a striking silhouette against the horizon.

Magnum is no ordinary power plant. With the Magnum design we transform the archetype of an industrial coal fired power plant into an icon for innovative and sustainable energy.

All functions to support energy production are in the “non process building”, a building with a contemporary, dynamic and transparent look.
