High-Profile Visit to the Project Area

4/3/2012Jochenstein

Manfred Weber, Member of the European Parliament, receives information on-site regarding planned energy storage plant at Riedl.

"Anyone wanting the energy turnaround must also want the energy reservoir," said Manfred Weber speaking clearly in favour of the project. In addition, he praised the project’s responsible and exemplary development.

Project manager Dominik Mayr presented the project and the current planning status by means of models in Jochenstein Danube power plant. He pointed out that, apart from the necessary upper reservoir and the power station, the power plant complex will be constructed entirely below ground. In this way, the sensitive and protected "Donauleiten" nature conservation area remains untouched and able to retain its present form.

Johann Strobel, commercial director of Donaukraftwerk Jochenstein AG, stressed the essential contribution to the development of the renewable energies that the project will make in Germany.
