Austria utility seeks electrical work for 480-MW Limberg 2

Verbund Austrian Hydro Power seeks bids for supply of cable and wiring systems for the 480-MW Limberg 2 pumped-storage project in Austria. Bids are due September 10.

The hydro operator 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 May, Verbund called for bids for supply of trash racks. (HNN 5/21/08)

Verbund now seeks bids for engineering, supply, and installation of cable, wiring, and grounding systems. The contract is to run from 2008 through 2012.

Commissioning of Limberg 2’s first 240-MW unit is scheduled for autumn 2011, with full commercial operation in March 2012.

Bid documents may be obtained from the address below. Bids, in German, are due by 1 p.m. September 10.
