Egglfing-Obernberg Run-of-River Power Plant

VERBUND’s Egglfing-Obernberg power plant is a run-of-river power plant on River Inn situated in the municipality areas of Bad Füssing (Bavaria) and Obernberg (Upper Austria).

Technical Description 

The Egglfing-Obernberg power plant was constructed between 1941 and 1951. During the construction works, the power plant was placed in the hands of the allies and was only completed after the end of the war. Six Kaplan turbines with a stationary shaft produce an average annual output of around 488 GWh. In 2000, the weir facility was renovated, as was the roof of the power house four years later.
