It is our goal to make sure that our plants function reliably at all times. After all, our customers depend on us and on our facilities.
We are the first European electricity company to have received the ISO 55001 certification for the asset management of hydroelectric power stations .
Our conventional thermal power plants in Italy and Hungary boast the use of state-of-the-art technology and comply with rigorous workplace safety and environmental standards.
Our combined cycle gas-fired power station in Csepel near Budapest is certified in accordance with ISO 9001 and ISO 14001. The Csepel power station also holds the ISO 28001 certification. Csepel has won several awards from the British Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) for their high workplace safety and accident prevention standards. Alpiq Csepeli Erőmű Kft. won its 12th RoSPA Award this year, while Alpiq Csepeli Szolgáltató Kft. received its 11th award. Added to this, all three power plants in Central/Eastern Europe operate a safety and health protection system and are OHSAS 18001 certified. The Gösgen nuclear power plant also has a certificate for its quality management system.
In Italy, our thermal power plants in Novara and San Severo (Foggia) meet the highest health, safety and environmental standards. For these reasons they obtained ISO 14001 Quality Certification and EMAS (Eco-Management and Audit Scheme).
The list of our achievements and awards for consistent quality management is long. To name but a few:
The electricity generation in the large run-of-river plants in Switzerland is TÜV SÜD certified, confirming that the power stations generate electricity completely from renewable energy sources. The Ruppoldingen power station is also Naturemade Star certified, the highest quality mark for ecologically produced electricity. Our storage power plants also generate TÜV SÜD certified electrical energy, and the power stations Grande Dixence, Engadiner Kraftwerke and Hinterrhein are certified by Naturemade (Naturemade Basic), the quality mark for energy from renewable sources.
Thanks to targeted training and an established safety culture, for eleven consecutive years not a single employee at Alpiq Csepel has been injured in a work-related accident.
