Osterreichische Bundesforste AG (OBf) has named an Austrian firm to supply pressure piping for the 3.5-MW Kainischtraun hydroelectric project in Kainisch and Bad Aussee.
OBf awarded a contract to Etertec Tiefbau GmbH to supply 3,600 meters of pressure pipe and fittings for the small hydro project. Etertec was one of two bidders for the work. (HNN 2/18/08)
In addition to the piping solicitation earlier this year, Obf also sought bids for planning, supply, assembly, and initial start-up of three Francis turbine-generators.
