KHR Hydropower Plants

Linked solutions

The Kraftwerke HinterRhein AG (KHR) operates a group of three hydropower plants in the Swiss Alps ‒ Ferrera, Bärenburg and Sils ‒ with a total installed capacity of approximately 650 MW. KHR also operates the smaller Thusis hydropower plant (6 MW). Most of the KHR power plants have been in operation for more than 40 years, and it was decided that a complete rehabilitation of the plant equipment and structures was required.
