The Spielfeld power plant was built between 1980 and 1982. The Spielfeld power plant, the final link in the Mur power plant chain, houses two machine sets that generate around 68 GWh of electricity per year.
Turbines and generators: Located in the powerhouse are two horizontally installed machine sets, each of which consists of a Kaplan bulb turbine with a nominal output of 6,500 kW and a directly coupled three-phase synchronous generator with a nominal output of 10,000 kVA. The machine transformer has a nominal output of 20,000 kVA. The generated electricity is fed into the 110 kV Leibnitz-Gosdorf line.

Weir system: The weir fields have segment gates with flaps. The inflatable rubber dam at the mouth of the Gamlitzbach is controlled with the aid of a float-controlled pump.
