Prangl employees are donating Lego bricks for the "Sterntalerhof" charitable organisation.

At this year's annual meeting, all participants had the exciting and enjoyable task of building a "Prangl 2020 building" out of Lego bricks. Ten beautiful and creative buildings/works of art were created. They will be displayed in the depots in the future and will serve as a reminder of the meeting. As numerous bricks remained unused after this creative workshop, we asked ourselves what we could do with them. Following eager discussions, we decided on the "Sterntalerhof" in Loipersdorf. We are delighted to provide these remaining Lego bricks to this good cause.

The core objective at the Sterntalerhof is inpatient care for families with critically ill children. It has taken a decade to develop and it aims to become established sustainably. The families with critically ill, chronically ill and terminally ill children are surrounded by a pleasant environment and are helped by a team of pedagogues, therapists, psychologists and pastors to find their way back into a normal daily life and to learn how to deal with their fate in the best possible way. This is all done in the heart of nature and supported by a team of specially-trained therapeutic horses who understand how to touch the children's hearts. In addition, integrative grief work following the loss of a loved one has become a very important task.

The agreed visit to the Sterntalerhof took place on 10/11/2015. The Prangl fleet manager, Mr Schreiner, and the regional sales manager for the Styria region, Mr Pronegg, went together to give the Lego donation personally to Mr Jankovits, who is the managing director of the Sterntalerhof. As part of this, the two Prangl employees were able to get an overview of the area and the therapy options. They both returned to the Zettling depot with many unique impressions.


Prangl is celebrating a jubilee! The self-propelled heavy-duty module PSF 3000 and the rotor blade device PFTV 300 have transported the 100th rotor blade to the…

On this occasion, a small celebration was held with the official bestowal of a certificate at the Moschkogel 2 wind farm. Representatives from Enercon were present, naturally alongside the specialists from Prangl.

Who would have previously thought that the blade transport device PFTV 300, which was developed with a decisive contribution from Prangl, would transport the 100th blade in such a short space of time?

We at Prangl! Because with this revolutionary machine, a solution has been brought to the market that only Prangl can offer in this form today. The technical masterpiece PFTV 300 is a guarantee of the capability to plan and execute projects in entirely new dimensions. This is a system that has been tried and tested many times over, which is a complete hit with many wind farm constructors. With this technology wind projects can be realised for the first time, in areas that would have been inconceivable a few years ago.

The self-propelled heavy-duty module can be remote-controlled under even the toughest conditions, and manoeuvred around tight and winding roads. The equipment is at home in alpine terrain in particular. There, where other machines stop working - that is where our machine first starts its job.

Renowned manufacturers in the field of renewable energies know to value the expertise of Prangl. The whole team behind this technology is working to optimally realise customer wishes - beyond all expectations.

We look forward to transporting the next 100 wind turbine blades, and to numerous interesting projects in the future.

Wien Energie Business Run

Prangl employees took part in this year's "Wien Energie Business Run" with great energy and enthusiasm.

It wasn't just colleagues from Austria that took part this year, employees from the CEE countries also got involved. Around 50 runners and Nordic walkers were worthy representatives of the Prangl family. This introduced the new slogan "We’ll Move Your World!" in a sporty way and on an international level.

There were internal certificates for the best three in each category. Alongside the sporty aspect, the main thing was the fun factor and the informal get-together that inspires the participants each year.

The trade magazine "Solid" has again awarded the Bautech Award this year.

After a year's break, the trade magazine "Solid" has again invited technically interesting projects to be entered for the "Bautech Award Austria": The well briefed jury meet just under three weeks before the award ceremony. The results were presented in the Parkschlössl conference hotel.

The main award for the most spectacular use of construction machinery went this year – as in 2011 and 2012 – to Prangl. Prangl impressed the jury with the use of a 500 t telescopic crane for the demolition of a power plant in Zeltweg.

At the start of April, the St. Florian depot was honoured to welcome Franz Hiesl, the Deputy President of the Federal State of Upper Austria.

In his capacity as the State Minister for Construction and Transport, Franz Hiesl was especially interested to talk to the Prangl employees. In a relaxed atmosphere, the company was presented and during a tour of the production facility a variety of topics were discussed.

Deputy President Hiesl was especially interested in the young team at the St. Florian facility. The training of young apprentices is a matter of very special interest to him. All the Prangl staff involved were very honoured and motivated to have the opportunity to speak directly with such a high-ranking politician.


A Prangl HGV driver was a guardian angel for a cyclist on the A23.

Mr Pospisil (who delivers aerial work platforms for Prangl) could not believe his own eyes at 4:30am on the A23 at the Erdberger bridge: “A cyclist was weaving along in front of me." The HGV driver turned on his rotating beacon lights, protected the cyclist and called the police.

After the construction site, the road widens into three lanes. The cyclist rode along the hard shoulder. Mr Pospisil drove behind him, keeping him safe for seven minutes. The unknown cyclist disappeared at the Kaisermühlen exit.

Mr Pospisil describes his heroic deed very modestly: "I only did what anyone would do in that situation. Because, somewhere that cyclist surely had friends and family and if anything had happened to him I would not be able to reconcile this with my conscience. So, for that reason I gave him seven minutes of my attention to ensure that nothing happened to him. Perhaps someday someone will do something like this for me if I'm in danger.”

Prangl is proud to have such a courageous driver in the team.
