About Alfen

With transformer substations, energy storage systems, charging stations for electric vehicles and a large portfolio of other products, Alfen takes on a central role and is a connecting partner in the electricity grid. With its broad range of in-house developed products and vast experience as systems integrator Alfen is dedicated to build the electricity grid of the future: reliable, sustainable and innovative.

  • Greenhouse horticulture

    For over ten years, Alfen is the number one partner for companies in the greenhouse horticulture industry. We provide for CHP connections, transformer substations and construct complete, privately owned high and medium voltage grids. This means we have vast experience with aspects such as installing lighting stations and connecting generators. Alfen provides for complete projects, from the initial design phase all the way to daily maintenance.

  • Grid Operators

    Alfen closely cooperates with various grid operators to future-proof the current electricity grid. By joining forces with grid operators, Alfen developed innovative solutions such as the ICU charge points for electric vehicles and Erado grid automation, while also equipping thousands of medium voltage facilities with digital remote fault passage indicators. Furthermore, Alfen offers the SOPRA energy storage solution, enabling grid operators to manage, store and use energy generated in a decentralized configuration.

  • Sustainable Energy

    As our society evolves toward a sustainable one, more and more electricity is generated from energy sources such as solar, wind and bio energy. In addition, electric energy is also increasingly being used to power electric vehicles. Alfen offers a portfolio of solutions to transform, store and distribute sustainable electric energy and is often partner in connecting solar parks and wind turbines. 

  • Industry

    Alfen is a highly reliable partner for industrial organizations in the field of distributing electric energy and the construction of electricity grids. Alfen delivers both separate prefab (transformer) stations and complete privately owned high and medium voltage grids. These are all fully serviced, turn-key solutions for the energy supply, which include all management and maintenance services.
