Downstream of the Kalter and Warmer Mandling, a weir gate system dams the Mandlingbach stream. The headrace is channelled via a pressure tunnel to the equipment chamber, from where an underground steel pressure tube line leads to the powerhouse. Each year, the power plant generates 21 GWh of electricity from 100% hydropower, with which it can supply almost 4,700 households with environmentally friendly electricity.
