Axpo strongly impairs Limmern pumped-storage power plant – further value adjustments required as prices are likely to remain low

19.09.2016 -
The year-on-year contraction of around 30% in European wholesale prices for electricity is a clear sign that the price slump will last longer than expected a year ago. Axpo therefore has to adjust the value of its production plants and make provisions for energy supply contracts again in the 2015/16 financial year.

Beznau 1: Replica provides breakthrough for demonstrating physical integrity – safety case will be ready in autumn

13.09.2016 -
In spring 2016, Axpo confirmed the presence of aluminium oxide inclusions in the reactor pressure vessel (RPV) of the Beznau nuclear power plant 1 (Beznau 1). The materials tests carried out on a test body, a replica of Ring C built by Axpo, now confirm these findings and validate the theory that the irregularities were introduced during the manufacturing process rather than during operations.
