Ramsaubach Run-of-River Power Plant

VERBUND's Ramsaubach power plant is a run-of-river plant situated on the river Ramsaubach and south of the town of Eisenerz in Styria.

History of the Power Plant 

After the smaller power plant of Erzbach, Ramsaubach power plant in the municipality of Eisenerz represents the second plant from Eisenerzer Kleinwasserkraftwerksges.m.b.H. (EKG), an operator company founded by Stadtwerke Eisenerz together with Steirische Wasserkraft- und Elektrizitäts-AG (STEWEAG). Approval in line with water law was granted on 6 August 1980.

Siemens AG Austria was responsible for the planning; the geological survey within the framework of the preliminary project works originated from Wolfgang Demmer of Korneuburg. Constructed in conjunction with the downstream power plant of Erzbach by the construction company Karl Lehner & Co., the plant could officially be commissioned on 8 March 1985 in the form of synchronisation and load rejection tests and the subsequent supply of power to the STEWEAG grid.
