Chronicle

The history of Pöyry Austria 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 Austria. Within this setting, Pöyry Austria GmbH came into being.

It is truly remarkable, and testimony of the farsightedness of their management at that time, that already in 1959 it was decided to offer the technical „know-how“, that was gained during the development of their 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 Pöyry’s 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 the small country Austria. Pöyry’s 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.
