Kellerberg Run-of-River Power Plant

VERBUND's power plant at Kellerberg is a run-of-river plant situated on the Drava River, east of the town of Kellerberg in Carinthia.

Technical Description 

The Kellerberg power plant was constructed from 1983 to 1985 and was co-financed by KELAG. The three power plants Paternion, Kellerberg and Villach were constructed to be a chain of power plants on the upper Drava River and follow the concept of a pier power station. They contain two machine units and three weir fields which are in use and the technical equipment is also identical at all of them. Two vertical Kaplan turbines produce on average around 93 GWh of electricity annually. Furthermore, a fish ladder is being planned for the Kellerberg site.
