PÖYRY ENERGY - 50 YEARS IN BUSINESS
Pöyry Energy - 50 years in business
The history of our company mirrors an important part of the recent history of the Austrian economic system, which is inextricably linked with the construction and expansion of energy generation facilities - with hydropower in the lead. The storage facilities in Kaprun and the systematic development of the Danube still count as the symbol for the economic recovery after WW2. This combined with the hydro-thermal Verbund development of calorific power plant capacities. Ensuring a consistent supply of energy was one of the cornerstones for the economic recovery and the economic vitality of our country. Within this setting, the Verbundplan GmbH, now called Pöyry Energy GmbH, came into being.
It is truly remarkable, and testimony of the farsightedness of the management at that time, that already in 1959 it was decided to offer the technical "know-how", that was gained during the development of our power plants, on the free market. Many companies followed this example much later on - most probably also sometimes too late! To this day it is the knowledge of our engineers that is in demand when it comes to the planning and development of power plants. And this on a scale that by far exceeds the size of our small country. Our engineers are in demand internationally and they have their own relative importance, whether deployed in planning, during building, or the delivery and assembly of power generating or distributing facilities.
