Faced by skyrocketing costs on international energy markets, Axpo was granted a CHF4 billion ($4.1 billion) credit line by the Swiss government earlier this month, a decision Energy Minister Simonetta Sommaruga said was to prevent any financial“wildfires” engulfing crucial energy companies.
In an interview published by newspapers in the CH-Media group on Saturday, Thomas Sieber said that the company still hadn't touched“a single franc” of it. The bailout funds represent“added security in an extreme situation on energy markets”, Sieber said. But Axpo would“do everything possible to manage through its own means”.
