Why is Alpiq the right partner for asset management?
Because we operate more than 70 power plants ourselves all over Europe and thus have a tremendous amount of experience in asset management. We cover the entire value-added chain, from construction to the marketing of the energy produced. This also includes maintenance and technical and commercial optimisation. Our goal is to improve your business and technical performance while at the same time ensuring the safety of property and people. We help you adhere to clear risk tolerance limits and decision thresholds.
How does the asset management system with ISO 55 001 certification work?
We have developed our asset management system together with HYDRO Exploitation SA, our asset service provider specialised in hydropower plants, and OXAND, a consulting company specialised in infrastructure ageing and risk simulation. The resulting product is applied at three different levels of management: strategic management, tactical management, and operating management. Using forecasts and scenarios, we decide on the best solution for balancing costs, risks, and power availability to ensure the highest possible profit margin for you.
What references does Alpiq have?
We successfully manage our own power plants all over Europe (hydropower plants in Switzerland, gas-fired combined-cycle power plants in Italy, Spain, and Hungary, as well as brown coal and natural gas power plants in the Czech Republic). In addition, we are managing partner of several of the largest hydroelectric operators in Switzerland, including Grande Dixence SA, Forces Motrices de Hongrin-Léman SA, Forces Motrices Gougra SA, or Salanfe SA, as well as the nuclear power plant Gösgen SA. In addition to process optimisation and capitalising on our expert knowledge of ageing, state, and risk of assets, we continuously generate added value for power plant owners.
