Lugano Industrial Companies (AIL), our partner for the supply of electricity, will build a 6-MW thermal power plant next to our car parks, where the leisure area is today. Thanks to the residual heat produced by our supercomputers and the future heat pumps installed in various buildings, a great deal of energy will be saved.

The construction work is expected to start in May and will last about six months. During this time, a small part of the CSCS parking spaces will be used by the construction company to install the crane that will enable the site to be serviced.

We are delighted that some of the thermal energy we produce can be reused, all to the benefit of our environment!
