The fuel used to generate electricity in the power plant is natural gas. This is burned in the gas turbine, and the resulting exhaust gas is then passed through a boiler.
In the boiler, the heat of the exhaust gas causes steam to be produced. This steam is then led through a steam turbine.
Together, the gas and steam turbines drive a generator, which produces electricity.
The use of the residual heat of the exhaust gas from the gas turbine makes the Sloecentrale more efficient than traditional power plants. The steam from the steam turbine is cooled by seawater in the condensor.
Finally the electricity is transmitted through an underground transmission cable to a distribution plant. From there, the electricity is distributed and ultimately reaches consumers through the mains outlet.
