The run-of-river power plant was built between 1906 and 1908; the original machinery and equipment was replaced with modern systems between 1963 and 1965. The plant also comprises two Kaplan turbines which generate approximately 81 GWh of electricity annually.
Turbines and generators: Two vertically mounted Kaplan turbines with five impeller blades have a nominal output of 6,560 kW at an intake capacity of 55 m³/sec. The directly coupled 8,000 kVA three-phase synchronous generators supply a nominal voltage of 5.3 kV.

Transformers: There are two machine transformers next to the powerhouse for raising the generated energy from 5 kV to 20 kV.
