380/220 kV switchgear substation Veytaux

The old 220 kV AIS substation at Veytaux, built in the early 1970s, was recently replaced by a new 380 kV and 220 kV high-voltage substation. The new 220 kV substation is connected to the existing Veytaux I hydropower plant (FMHL) with a production/pumping capacity of 240 MW. The new Veytaux II power plant (FMHL) with an additional capacity of 240 MW, currently under construction, will be connected to the new 380 kV shielded substation in the course of 2016.
