Austria utility seeks partner to develop 300-MW Pfaffenboden

Vienna utility Wien Energie GmbH seeks expressions of interest from potential partners to develop the 300-MW Pfaffenboden pumped-storage project in Austria. Responses are due December 17.

Wien Energie took bids in November for hydraulic steel, earthworks, and a turbine-generator for expansion of the 9.58-MW Opponitz project on Austria's Ybbs River.

The utility now plans to develop the Pfaffenboden pumped-storage project at the gravel pit of a former limestone plant at Molln, Austria. It seeks participants in the project who would share construction costs and risks for up to a 49 percent share of the hydro project's energy storage rights.

Specifications and documents may be obtained from the address below. Expressions of interest, in German or English, are due to the address below by noon December 17.
