Sintering involves the use of electrically heated furnaces and powder presses, which require a great deal of energy. Without reactive power compensation, these would overload the local electricity grid and incur substantial costs. To prevent that, we relieve power lines of reactive power and contribute to the local security of supply. This is something that Sinterwerke Grenchen can now also rely on.
On Monday, 25 November water started flowing through the pipes at the Nant de Drance power plant. This is an important step for Eric Wuilloud, who has been running the project since it first began to take shape back in 2006. We asked him three questions about this milestone.
Fifteen Valais sheep regularly graze on the land surrounding the Ruppoldingen run-of-river hydropower plant. Rather than using machines, Alpiq relies on animals to cultivate the natural areas along the bypass waterway. The sheep graze on nearly all plant species, among others, prolific blackberry bushes and neophytes. The animals help preserve biodiversity.
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.
