Interesting Facts/Records (in own words): The chimney for the Units 5/6 is nearly identic with that of Unit 7. It belongs to the tallest free-
standing structures at Baden-Württemberg.
Unit 5 and Unit 6 have an electrical power of approximately 100 MW.
The erection of this chimney was necessary as emission laws went stricter at the beginning of the 1980ies.

The Heilbronn Power Station is a coal-fired (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hard_coal) power station (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Power_station) in Heilbronn (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heilbronn), Germany (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Germany) (49° 10′38.4″ N, 9°12'22.75″ E). It is operated by EnBW (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/EnBW), until 1997 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1997) EVS (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/EVS) and has seven units. The capacity of the three units is 950 MW (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Megawatt), two units with a capacity of approx. 200 MW are in cold reserve.The plant is in the Heilbronner industrial area at the northern end of the channel port. Inferred over the Neckar the necessary cooling water, at the same time is made the delivery of the coal by inland waterway craft by the river. The units 1 to 6 with approx. capacity of 100 MW each were built in the 1950s and 1960s, whereby the two first units were in the meantime shut down and the units 3 and 4 formed the cold reserve. Between 1964 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1964) and 1966 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1966) built units 5 and 6 are still in use. In the years 1982 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1982) to 1986 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1986) the unit 7 with capacity of 750 MW was built as mean load power station, but new, 140 m a high cooling tower (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cooling_tower) and a high chimney (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chimney) developed for 250 m. The unit had from the outset a fluegas desulphuration and a denitrification. Because of amending the large firing plant regulation in the 1983 both had to be re-tooled also for the units 5 and 6, so that continued using was possible. Additionally for both units a second chimney in same design and height was built as with unit 7. The two chimneys are the highest buildings in Heilbronn and are recognizable as landmarks from far away. Via a force heat coupling industrial companies in Heilbronn and Neckarsulm (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neckarsulm) are supplied by the power station additionally with long-distance heating.Since 1998 the plant has a permission for the burning of sewage (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sewage) sludge, since 2003 may do additionally also petrolkoks are fired. A shut down unit of the power station is used since 1988 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1988) as meeting centre (block E).

I've added the 140-meter cooling tower, as well, but I'm confused as to the three 130-meter chimneys and two 90-meter chimneys are the German-version of the wikipedia pages makes mention of for Blocks 1-6. Where these chimneys destroyed for the 250-meter chimeny for what has become block 5 & 6?

http://www.luftfahrtfotografie.de/images/kwheilbronn01.jpg

The picture only shows the two 250-meter chimneys and the 140-meter cooling tower. Where all other chimney demolished when the plant was reconstructed in 1986?

Text should be 5-6 not 7.

This chimeny of Kraftwerk Heilbronn unit 7 is among the tallest constructions in Baden-Württemberg.


SOLUTION THE DOUBT:

Blöcke 1–6 from Wikipedia German Version
Die Blöcke 1 bis 6 mit einer Leistung von jeweils ca. 100 MW wurden in den 1950er und 1960er Jahren gebaut, wobei die beiden ersten Blöcke 1988 stillgelegt wurden und die Blöcke 3 und 4 die Kaltreserve bilden. Die zwischen 1964 und 1966 erbauten Blöcke 5 und 6 sind nach wie vor in Betrieb. Bis 1986 verfügte das bestehende Kraftwerk über 3 Schornsteine mit je 130 Metern Höhe und 2 Schornsteinen mit 90 Metern Höhe. Einer davon ist noch auf den stillgelegten Blöcken erhalten.

Translation:

Blocks 1 to 6

The Blocks 1 upto 6 with a Power of each ca. 100 MW were in 1950 and 1960 years constructed.The first two Blocks, 1-2 were shut down in 1988 and the Blocks 3 and 4 Cold Reserve were kept. The Blocks 5 and 6 built between 1964 and 1966 are already in service. Until 1986 the Power Plant had 3 Chimney with 130m each, [B]So please include also these 3 Structures as demolished. and 2 Chimney with 90m, also demolished. One of the 90m high Chminey belongs to the the Blocks 1-2 shuted down but still there. So please include also these 2 Structures as demolished.

So: Three Chimneys 130m demolished, constructed from 1964 finished 1966 and demolished in 1986, belonged to Blocks 3-4-5-6. Two Chimneys 90m high also demolished in 1986 and constructed between 1950 until 1960 belonged to Blocks 1-2.

PLEASE INCLUDE ALSO ALL THOSE 5 CHIMNEYS STRUCTURES DEMOLISHED. :-;

They've been added but the information is still confusing, particularly the English translation. I'd like to know when each set of blocks was constructed as it seems 3-6 weren't constructed all at the same time.
