The Asnæs Power Station (Danish: Asnæsværket) is a coal-fired power plant operated by DONG Energy in Kalundborg, Denmark. It consists of three active units, which deliver 147 MW (Unit 2), 270 MW (Unit 4) and 640 MW (Unit 5). Unit 3 went in service in 1959 and uses a 152.1-metre-tall (499 ft) flue gas stack, while Unit 5, which went into service in 1981, uses a 220.1-metre-tall (722 ft) flue gas stack, the third tallest in Denmark. Its two 60m high coal cranes were dismantled in 2016.[1]
