Lausanne – In the course of streamlining its nuclear energy portfolio, Alpiq has reduced its shareholding in Kernkraftwerk Leibstadt AG (KKL) by 5 percentage points. A power supply contract with BKW will be dissolved for this purpose.

Alpiq and BKW have agreed to dissolve a power supply contract. Since the commissioning of the Leibstadt nuclear power plant (KKL), BKW has procured 5.3 per cent of the power generated at KKL from Alpiq under this contract. In return, Alpiq will transfer a direct holding of 5.0 per cent in the KKL share capital to BKW. In doing so, BKW will take over the former shares of Alpiq Suisse SA from Alpiq AG. As a result, Alpiq AG has reduced its direct interest by 5 percentage points and now holds 27.4 per cent of the KKL share capital.

The transfer of the shares in Kernkraftwerk Leibstadt AG is subject to pre-emptive rights among the other KKL shareholders.
