TURBINE SHAFTS // SPAIN ⇒ KAPRUN, AUSTRIA

Europe’s biggest power station construction site is in Kaprun, Austria: The new pump storage power station, Limberg II extends the current hydro-electric plant in Kaprun, upper reservoir. TRANSPORTAS delivered the “core” elements of Limberg II, two turbine shafts by coaster from El Ferrol in Spain to Rotterdam and on to the Kaprun Mountain by heavy duty truck. To manage the 14% steep gradient the load is pushed and pulled by two tractor units.
