Austria utility seeks electrical equipment for 480-MW Limberg 2

Verbund Austrian Hydro Power seeks bids for supply of electrical distribution and control equipment for the 480-MW Limberg 2 pumped-storage project in Austria. Bids are due February 27.

Verbund is building an underground powerhouse containing two motor-generators as part of the Glockner Kaprun scheme, near the 240-MW Kaprun project. Limberg 2 is to employ the existing storage reservoirs of Mooserboden and Wasserfallboden. In January, Verbund called for bids for electrical protection equipment. (HNN 1/3/08)
