For the relocation of the VIKING plant from Kufstein to Langkampfen completed in 2001, modern construction methods were employed for all newly erected building sections, creating domestic added value on account of the preference for using regional service providers. For construction phase 3, which was inaugurated at the end of 2012, only LED lighting was used, while the plant switched to groundwater cooling during the second stage of completion.
The energy savings achieved make this method significantly cheaper than cooling with conventional air conditioning. The water is routed via a cold exchanger and the ventilation system uses state-of-the-art induction outlets. Savings of around 80 percent are achieved compared with conventional cooling systems.
