By laying them underground, the lines in the alpine region are better protected from the weather and natural hazards. In addition, the villages and protected areas on the Grimsel could be freed from above-ground lines, write the Federal Office of Energy and the grid company Swissgrid in a statement on Thursday. The region is part of the UNESCO World Natural Heritage Jungfrau, Aletsch, Bietschhorn.

Swissgrid has to renew the aging overhead line on the Grimsel. At the same time, capacity is to be expanded from the current 220 to 380 kilovolts. The expansion is being carried out with a view to the federal government’s energy strategy and the associated increase in electricity production from hydropower.
