Schönau, Austria

Following commissioning of unit #1 in March 2013, ANDRITZ HYDRO has now successfully put unit #2 at Schönau hydropower plant into commercial operation.

HPP Schönau is located on the Enns River on the border between the Austrian states of Styria and Upper Austria.

The contract for refurbishment of two generators was awarded to ANDRITZ HYDRO in December 2011 by Ennskraftwerke AG Austria. ANDRITZ HYDRO impressed the customer by offering the best technical and economic solution, especially regarding increasing generator efficiency.

The scope of supply included two complete new generator stators, complete new poles for the rotors, new axial rotor fans, new control equipment for the generator and powerhouse ventilation, as well as air temperature regulation, erection, and commissioning.

The completion of HPP Schönau marks a further important milestone for ANDRITZ HYDRO in the Austrian hydropower market.
