Austria utility seeks hydro plant simulator for Danube system

Verbund Austrian Hydro Power AG seeks bids by August 4 to supply a hydropower station simulator to simulate Verbund hydro projects on Austria’s Danube River.

Verbund said it seeks a “virtual power station” that is able to copy the operation of its Danube power stations as close to reality as possible. The simulator is to be used for training of operating personnel, investigation of reservoir behavior, and testing of regulation mechanisms.

Planning, execution, supply, start-up, and documentation of the simulator is to take 24 months.

Documents may be obtained from Verbund Management Service GmbH, Attn.: Edmund Posch, Ankerstrasse 6, A-8054 Graz, Austria; (43) 5-031338078; Fax: (43) 5-0313138078; E-mail:
