Poyry awarded contracts for pumped-storage hydro plant in Austria

Global engineering and consulting firm Poyry has been awarded contracts by Austrian utility Verbund for the provision of engineering services and for site supervision during construction of the 430-MW Reisseck II pumped-storage hydro plant in Austria.

The overall value for Poyry in the two contracts amounts to about 9.2 million euros (US$11.26 million). Prior to these contracts, Poyry executed the tender and approval design for the Reisseck II hydroelectric power plant.

Recently, Poyry was awarded a surveying contract for the Limmern pumped-storage hydropower plant in Switzerland. The services comprise all geodetic surveying tasks during the construction period lasting until 2015.

Kraftwerke Linth-Limmern AG is developing the 1,000-MW Limmern project in Linthal Valley in eastern Switzerland. The plant is being built to provide electricity during periods of peak demand and to help further develop Switzerland's low-carbon power generation.
