During the past weekend German media reported that Vattenfall has decided to invest in the Jänschwalde area.
Ivo Banek, Head of Communications at Vattenfall, says:
“We have made no such decision. The company will not invest in neither open-caste mine extensions, nor in new lignite capacity. We leave such a decision to the new owner of the lignite business who should have the opportunity to evaluate the framework conditions independently.”
