Alpiq Holding Ltd. is Switzerlandâs leading energy trading company and largest energy provider with a European focus. The Group was formed at the beginning of 2009 through the merger of two energy pioneers, Atel Holding Ltd and Energie Ouest Suisse SA (EOS). Operating in 31 countries with subsidiaries present in 27 countries, it employs more than 10,000 people and generated consolidated revenue of approximately CHF 15 billion for 2009. Alpiq is engaged in power generation and transmission, energy sales and trading, and energy services.
James Davies, Head of Sales & Client Services at Trayport, said, âThe agreement with Alpiq is an important one for Trayport. The company was previously using trading software from another supplier, but after Alpiqâs merger, they decided to upgrade to Trayportâs latest software, which brings with it improved functionality to assist its electronic trading operation. Trayportâs Trading Gateway will help Alpiq to trade the best prices across a wide range of European energy markets. It also allows Trayport to play a central role in bringing both the power markets and those who trade them closer together.â
"We are pleased to sign the agreement with Trayport to use GlobalVision Trading Gateway and look forward to a successful collaboration between the companies,â said Andreas Werz, spokesman from Alpiq.â
