Austria utility seeks trash racks for 480-MW Limberg 2

Verbund Austrian Hydro Power seeks bids for supply of trash racks for the 480-MW Limberg 2 pumped-storage project in Austria. Bids are due June 2.

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 April, Verbund called for bids for electrical distribution and control equipment. (HNN 4/23/08)

Verbund now seeks bids to design, manufacture, install, and start up trash rack equipment for inlet and outlet structures at Wasserfallboden reservoir. The contract is to run from 2008 through 2010.

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. June 2.
