As part of the general contractor contract for the complete electrical engineering equipment, Bouygues Energies & Services will supply the high- and medium-voltage system, the main distribution board, the control and switch cabinets, the process control technology, the ICT infrastructure and the electrical installation from a single source.
In order to provide the resources required for this project in the areas of project management, engineering, assembly, installation and commissioning, specialists from Bouygues Energies & Services are being brought in from all over Switzerland (Elektro Bern, Schaltanlagenbau Spreitenbach, Enertrans Niedergösgen, Prozessautomation Strengelbach).
The coordination of the various divisions of Bouygues Energies & Services is carried out under the leadership of project manager Matthias Egger as Single Point of Contact (SPOC). This enables optimum use to be made of in-house synergies and significantly simplifies contact and communication for the customer.
The participation in the construction of this extremely demanding project is an example of the competence of Bouygues Energies & Services in Switzerland in the provision of high-quality services and in the construction of such complex plants.
The new wood-fired power plant will cut fossil fuel consumption by 70% and ensure a sustainable supply of energy during production campaigns. The waste wood required for the operation of the power plant will be processed decentrally, resulting in CO₂ savings of around 16 000 tons per year. In addition to electrical energy, the plant supplies hot water for district heating. The wood-fired power plant feeds surplus energy and steam that is not required for sugar production into the public grid.
