Switzerland's largest alpine solar plant produces electricity

Renewable Energy

Switzerland's largest alpine solar plant has been producing electricity with Lombardi's support since the end of 2021.

The Swiss Energy Strategy 2050 focuses on renewable energy. For this energy transition, more electricity must also be produced in winter to close the so-called winter electricity gap. This is precisely where the pioneering project in the Alps comes in.

Switzerland's largest alpine solar plant at 2500 metres above sea level was partially commissioned at the end of 2021. The pioneering AlpinSolar project is expected to produce 3.3 million kilowatt hours of electricity per year from August 2022 - half of it in winter. In this way, solar energy is used at any time of the year and despite the “sea of fog”.

Lombardi is proud to have been entrusted by AlpinSolar Ltd. with the design services for the technical centre of the photovoltaic system for this pioneering project. The services included the SIA phases 32, 41 and 51 to 53 for construction works and heating, ventilation, air conditioning equipments.
