HYDRO Exploitation, a leader in Switzerland
HYDRO Exploitation SA is a service provider for the operation of electrical installations and hydroelectric facilities.
HYDRO Exploitation offers electrical power plant owners its special know-how in operating and maintaining hydropower plants to maximise availability and safety.
HYDRO Exploitation SA is managed by (from left to right) Director Elmar Kämpfen, and board members Alexandre Bircher, Dominique Décaillet and Mario Zimmermann.
HYDRO Exploitation was founded in 2002 by EOS Holding SA (now Alpiq Suisse SA), FMV SA, and Grande Dixence SA. Romande Energie Holding SA, and then Forces Motrices de la Gougra SA, joined our shareholder base in 2007 and 2011.
The announcement of the opening of the electricity market resulted in the foundation of HYDRO Exploitation SA in 2002. The founding shareholders wanted to rethink their traditional operating structures.
EDF: rehabilitation of the Francis groups
As part of the programme to maintain and optimise its hydropower plants, Électricité de France (EDF) entrusted us in 2017 with the rehabilitation of the Francis groups at the St Pierre en Faucigny and Le Carrelet power plants.
Electricité de la Lienne: replacement of the group electrical protections
Energie Sion-Région SA (ESR), which operates the hydropower facility at La Lienne, chose us to replace the old electrical generator protections of the ABB REG216 type, that had been brought into service in the nineties, by new ABB REG670 units.
