Galliker puts its own power grid into operation


Altishofen/Dagmersellen LU – The logistics company Galliker has installed its own power grid on its company premises. The neighboring company PanGas can also be supplied with the energy generated from photovoltaic systems.

The logistics company Galliker has commissioned its own medium-voltage power grid at the Altishofen site. According to a media release from the subsidiary Imbach Logistik, the electrical energy is supplied entirely by the company’s own photovoltaic systems. The electricity will be used to power Galliker’s fleet of trucks. The neighboring industrial gas producer PanGas can also be supplied with electricity from the new plant. PanGas intends to use this to produce green hydrogen, which in turn will be used for some of Galliker’s trucks.

According to the information, the realization of the power grid project required numerous excavation works, installation of additional transformer stations, reconstruction of main electrical distribution systems and a connection under the north-south main axis of the A2 freeway. In addition to the electrical installations, more charging stations for e-trucks will also be created.

With this project, Galliker wants to take a further step in the direction of green logistics. At the end of last year, the logistics company had already joined forces with Centralschweizerische Kraftwerke AG, milk processor Emmi and PanGas to form an eco-alliance. ce/ww
