Finhaut – One of the pump turbines at the Nant de Drance power plant was connected to the extra-high-voltage grid for the first time. This process went smoothly and marks a major step in the current test phase. Once the power plant is fully operational at the end of 2021, it will make an important contribution to the security of supply, providing flexible power generation and a total capacity of 900 MW.
Alpiq’s Gösgen hydropower plant has been granted a new concession for 70 years. The new concession was signed on 23 September 2020 by the governments of the two cantons of Solothurn and Aargau as well as representatives of Alpiq, as the concession holder, and took effect retroactively from 1 January 2020. Over the coming years, Alpiq will invest CHF 63 million in the largest run-of-river power plant on the River Aare – thus making an important contribution to climate-friendly electricity generation and the security of supply in Switzerland.
With innovative solutions, Alpiq offers its customers in Europe comprehensive and efficient services in the fields of energy generation and marketing as well as energy optimisation and e-mobility. Below, we would like to present selected projects.
