Johann Pluy, Member of the Board of Management of ÖBB-Infrastruktur AG and Brigitte Robisch, Mayor of Laa an der Thaya, authorized ÖBB´s photovoltaic system for green traction energy in Kottingneusiedl (Lower Austria).

"The 16.7 Hertz traction flow is fed directly into the overhead contact line. This means that around 80,000 train travelers can travel from Vienna to Salzburg with the green traction power provided by ÖBB INFRA," says Thomas Köck - Project Manager at the plant.

Regardless of whether it is electricity for trains, stations, or terminals - ÖBB is among the clear pioneers in generating electricity from renewable energy for the rail system. The world's first traction energy solar power plant east of the Wilfleinsdorf stop in Lower Austria was put into operation as early as 2015. In addition, the world's first photovoltaic system is currently being managed on a soundproof wall in Tullnerfeld, producing green traction current (16.7 Hz) for the railway system.

In total, ÖBB currently has twenty-one 50 Hz and three 16.7 Hz photovoltaic systems in operation throughout Austria.

With the new photovoltaic system at Wels train station - the construction period takes a total of nine weeks - ÖBB is continuing this environmentally friendly energy trend and therefore increasing its production.

On the topic of renewable energy, ÖBB has stated on their website, "As Austria's number 1 climate protection company, we have a responsibility to future generations. With the commissioning of the photovoltaic system on the roof of the parking deck at the Wels main train station, we are not only increasing the generation of green electricity for our systems and thus creating sustainable values ​​for the future."
