What's new at the kiosk?

Behind the Alexa shopping centre, not far from Alexanderplatz, a new kiosk has opened. This kiosk doesn't sell newspapers, however, because it contains a 10 kV switching point.

The station is on the corner of Alexanderstrasse and Voltairestrasse and from a distance it looks like a real little newspaper kiosk. We turned its bland facade into a miniature work of art. The switching point helps to connect mobile transformer operating stations, which are used to supply electricity to a variety of events.
