Cornerstone ceremony for “TenneT Campus”


TSC member TenneT, the Dutch-German transmission system operator (TSO), is expanding its German corporate headquarters in Bayreuth, Germany. On 29 June 2016, Urban Keussen and Mel Kroon, TenneT chief executive officers, Franz Josef Pschierer, Bavarian State Secretary, and Brigitte Merk-Erbe, Lord Mayor of Bayreuth, jointly laid the first stone for the new building.

TenneT is not only extending its German headquarter but will also generate 200 new jobs approximately. The company invests about €50m in renovations, extensions and new constructions. The newly built facilities of “TenneT Campus” will meet all ecological standards with a low heating demand, a photovoltaic system and a cogeneration unit. The completion of the work is expected in late 2017.

During the ceremony, Urban Keussen pointed out that TenneT “as the largest German TSO ensures from its location in Bayreuth the electricity supply in Bavaria and Germany and is responsible for a large part of the grid expansion for the energy transition”. In the future there will be around 750 employees in Bayreuth, “more than twice as many as in 2010”. “Tennet Campus” is meant to be “an inspiring work environment for our employees to meet the challenges of the energy transition”.
