On 17 October 2018 the members of FINNCHAM Austria visited Pöyry Austria, the Austrian subsidiary of the Finnish company Pöyry.
Pöyry provides intelligent and sustainable consulting and engineering solutions for the energy- industry- and infrastructure sectors. The service portfolio of Pöyry covers management consulting, as well as the entire project cycle from project planning and implementation to plant operation support. One of the main focus areas of Pöyry Austria is the international hydro consulting and water management. The services related to digitalisation, adjusting to the climate change as well as resource efficiency have an increasing importance in the field.
The evening began with the welcome speech of Hannu Kyröläinen, Ambassador of Finland. Thereafter Thomas Kriesch, the CEO of Pöyry Austria, gave a highly interesting presentation about the history, mission and current project landscape of the company. Pöyry manages an impressive project portfolio around the globe, and Ernst Zeller (Prokurist, Head of Hydro / Global Head Marketing and Sales Hydropower and Renewables) and Martin Fuchs (Head of Hydro Consulting) gave the guests a deeper insight into the topic in their inspiring presentations. It was particularly interesting for the participants to hear, how Pöyry helps its customers to manage challenges that are caused for example by the climate change.
Afterwards the guests had an opportunity for networking – and so ended the evening with intensive discussions, drinks and a buffet.
