Second president of the national council, Karlheinz Kopf, September working visit

The second President of the Austrian National Council, Karlheinz Kopf, visited Stockholm in the beginning of September to meet with his Swedish counterparts. In addition to his political agenda, he also attended a programme with economic focus organized by Commercial Counsellor Albrecht Zimburg and his team. Among others the innovative biomass plant "Värtaverket", which is currently being completed by Austrian company Andritz was a highlight of the tour. The biomass plant - the largest of its kind - will supply around 190,000 households in Stockholm. With this investment, the proportion of renewable energy sources for Stockholm´s district heating will be increased from currently 45% to impressive 70%.

Furthermore President Kopf and his team were briefed in the beautifully renovated premises of Advantage Austria´s Stockholm office on the global success of Austrian company Kapsch´ Swedish subsidiary.

The visit came to a great end with Mr. Kopf flying Austrian flags in Friends Arena Solna, being an enthusiastic fan watching Austria`s National Football Team battling a competitive Swedish opponent during EC qualification.

Thanks a lot for the support.
