Austria - Reißeck II

VERBUND Hydro Power AG has awarded ANDRITZ HYDRO a contract to supply the control equipment and protective infrastructure in the new pumped storage power plant Reißeck II in Carinthia (Austria).

PSPP Reißeck II will connect the hydraulic systems of the power station groups Malta and Reißeck/Kreuzeck, which currently operate separately, thereby putting existing resources to more efficient use. The Reißeck II pumped storage power plant will have a total capacity of 430 MW, based on two generating units, in turbine and pump mode.

The scope of delivery encompasses project planning, installation, and startup of the control systems of both generating sets, including functional areas such as the draft tube flap gate, spherical valve, and cooling water system.

Additionally the contract includes the new installation of hydraulic protection for the penstocks, which requires a high degree of know-how by the entire project team. Together with the awarded excitation system, the Neptun concept will also be installed at PSPP Reißeck II.
