RWE Delays Start of German Coal Plant After Acids Enter Boiler

RWE AG, Germany’s second-biggest utility, delayed the start of a hard coal plant in Germany by three months after chemicals accidentally entered a boiler.

RWE will start selling power from its 764-megawatt Hamm-D coal plant March 1, 2014, instead of Nov. 30 this year, Lothar Lambertz, a company spokesman, said by phone from Essen today.
