Subsidiary Company KWL

Reservoir site with intake structure

In 2010 P&P founded the 100% subsidiary company Kraftwerk Lasberg Gmbh (KWL), www.kwl.co.at, which purchased the small hydropower plant of the same name in the region Upper Austria. The aim of the company is the development and operation of hydropower plants.

 

P&P had already developed a rehabilitation and efficiency improvement concept for the plant for the previous owner, including obtaining all necessary permits. This resulted in the annual power generation potential being raised by more than 30%.

 

The operation of the plant yields valuable hands-on experience for the P&P hydropower experts in power plant maintenance, automation and remote controlled operation. This know-how is directly incorporated into the ongoing hydropower designs of P&P.
