CORONA CRISIS: CURRENT INFORMATION
Stress Test passed
Electricity consumption increases
350 million economic incentive
In the middle of March, due to the Corona crisis, we have interrupted activities at approximately 50 construction sites all over Austria and thus suspended our investments in the power supply infrastructure. Now we are able to resume these activities step by step and can thus contribute considerably to the recovery of Austria’s economy: in 2020 alone we will invest 350 million Euros.
In doing so we pay particular attention to follow the guidelines stipulated by the social partners and to adhere to the highest standard of hygiene, disinfection and social distancing. Prior to the resumption of activities every single project has been thoroughly evaluated and examined.
Austrian Power Grid (APG) operates and controls Austria’s nationwide transmission network. Every day we are working to make sure that everybody has electricity when they need it.
- Compliance with the social distancing stipulations of the Austrian government for the protection of our staff – along our transmission lines, in the substations, at the control center or in our headquarter
- Best possible preparation for additional potential disturbances affecting the orderly operation of the network to ensure power supply for Austria’s population and business in particular to overcome the current crisis.
