EDL will perform all detail engineering services for the Hi-Bis2 project. According to the time schedule the engineering work will be completed until July 2013. Commissioning is scheduled to be in the spring of 2014.

Engineering work had progressed so far that the site works could already start. The first sod was turned on the Bitterfeld site on October 1, 2012.

Before the first sod could be turned a shinto priest wished the best of luck for the construction and operation of the plant as well as eternal harmony between man and nature.
