Projects: new-build projects and revitalisation projects

In the next two years, we will invest over 3 billion euros in Austria and Europe in the areas of hydropower, wind and solar power and green hydrogen, as well as in the expansion of the necessary high-performance grids. We give you an overview of our key projects here.

Ybbs2020: more electricity from the Danube

VERBUND is currently modernising Austria's oldest Danube power plant at Ybbs-Persenbeug on the Danube.
The investment of €144m in the Ybbs2020 project will increase generation by more than 77 million kilowatt hours and further improve reliability. The six old Kaplan turbines will be replaced, the instrumentation and control systems improved. The increase of 6% corresponds to the annual electricity consumption of 22,000 households.

Project to renovate the Jettenbach-Töging am Inn power plant

VERBUND is renovating the Jettenbach-Töging hydropower plant. Bavaria's largest power plant on the Inn will in future supply around 200,000 households with clean, locally produced electricity.

Gratkorn power plant: green energy from Styrian hydropower

Gratkorn power plant is the latest joint project of VERBUND and Energie Steiermark on the Mur in Styria. The run-of-river power plant will be the most modern hydropower plant of its kind and cover the electricity requirement of about 15,000 households.

Pumped storage power plant Limberg III: even more power for the Kaprun power plant

Upon completion, Limberg 3 will be a power plant whose design is tailored very specifically to the future needs of the energy transition. With the pumped storage power plant, we are increasing the capacity in Kaprun by 240 megawatts.

Salzburg line: powerful network for renewables

The Salzburg line is the most important infrastructure project in the field of high-voltage lines. Our subsidiary Austrian Power Grid AG is safely expanding the domestic high-voltage grid with it. The lines between Salzburg and Upper Austria will thus become fit for the energy transition.

Ottensheim 29: Vital treatment on the Donau

At the Danube power plant Ottensheim-Wilhering, our power plant team on site will spend the next few years working intensively on generator refurbishments and major turbine overhauls. The revitalisation of the machines in Ottensheim-Wilhering will supply additional electricity from hydropower for 16,000 households by 2029.

Riedl energy store: a project of the energy transition

The Riedl energy store is an important element for climate protection and a sustainable energy future. The energy store is becoming an important supporting pillar for the storage of solar electricity generated in the region and thus essential for a successful energy transition and a secure supply of green electricity. With the construction of the 300 MW storage facility, Bavaria’s pumped storage capacity will increase by more than 50% and the state’s electricity storage capacities by more than 70%.
