AFRY in Austria

AFRY’s strong roots in Austria have grown from contributing to 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 providing the majority of energy. The storage facilities in Kaprun and the systematic development of the Danube hydropower plants are symbolic of the economic recovery in the second half of the 20th century, along with the hydro-thermal Verbund development of caloric power plant capacities. Ensuring a consistent supply of energy was one of the cornerstones of the economic recovery in Austria. Within this setting, the former  Verbundplan GmbH, later Pöyry Energy GmbH and now AFRY Austria GmbH came into being in 1959.

Today, AFRY Austria comprises of 3 federal states offices, with subsidiaries in Turkey and Israel. Approximately 260 staff members are available to support our clients by offering a broad range of consulting, design and engineering services in various business areas, including Power Station Technology, Power Supply Systems, Construction Management, Infrastructure Projects, Civil Engineering, Management Consulting, GeoServices (Geology/Geotechnical und Geophysics), Surveying and Measuring Technology, Digital Solution Services, Material Technology and Plant & Pipeline Engineering.
