Energy-efficient broadcasting services for the Lake Geneva region

The ‘La Dôle’ broadcasting station is located above Nyon in the Swiss canton of Vaud and provides the population with radio and TV programmes.


Thanks to clever cooling with fresh outside air and the photovoltaic system built in June 2018, this is a very energy-efficient transmitter. Suntechnics Fabrisolar AG, as a leading full-service provider of turnkey solutions for renewable energies, has planned and installed the PV system on the building as well as the tailor-made system on the transmission tower.  


‘In addition, we benefit from the high reflection of the snow, by using bifacial modules on the transmission tower,’ says Olivier Loutan, project manager SunTechnics Fabrisolar.
