Power Plant Tour of the KWO
A look into the world of hydropower
One day under power
The KWO’s (Oberhasli Power Company) infrastructure form one of the most complex hydroelectric systems in the alps. Since its founding in 1924, the KWO has continually expanded its infrastructure which today consists of 13 power plants, 8 storage lakes, 160km of tunnels, hundreds of kilometres of pipes, roads and transport lifts. The KWO produces enough hydroelectricity for more than 1 million people.
Tours of the power plants are possible in summer and winter. The KWO visitor's service gives you the opportunity to take a closer look at the production of renewable and CO2-free hydroelectricity.
