90% rail transport or external waste loading station for EVN

The EVN thermal waste processing plant in Dürnrohr/Lower Austria supplies 170,000 households with heating and electricity every year.
The energy required is generated from up to 500,000 tonnes of waste which is recovered through thermal processing. This process is unique on a global scale. 90% of the waste required is delivered by rail – which saves 40,000 HGV journeys every year.

Tomorrow’s photovoltaic technology

A research-oriented photovoltaic plant was built on the site of the former EVN nuclear power station in Zwentendorf which was divided into two separate plants with different configurations, types and mounting types to investigate the wide range of applications for this future-oriented technology. The primary goal of the plant is to investigate the possible energy potential of new photovoltaic technology with the added intention of building up a collection of data on the behaviour of these systems in a network.
