Nussdorf Run-of-River Plant

Nussdorf power plant is a run-of-river plant situated on the river Inn in the municipality of Nussdorf on Inn.

Technical Description 

The power plant in Nussdorf was constructed between 1979 and 1982. The type of construction of the pier power plant, with its foundation base, complies as much as possible with the demands to evenly-spread the load on the lake clay deposits, which are prone to erosion. The two turbine piers and the three weir fields are arranged on an alternating basis in a longitudinal axis across the river respectively. The turbine piers each contain a Kaplan turbine with a standing shaft and an umbrella type alternator. Thus, on a yearly average, around 246 GWh of electricity are generated.
