Technical Description 

The ground breaking ceremony for the oldest and architecturally most valuable power plant on the river Inn took place in 1919. A weir facility, a 20 km long upstream canal, and the power plant itself with its 28 m long downstream canal were constructed. The plant was conceived as a canal power plant because the construction of the canal allowed for a drop height of around 30 m at the Töging site, which was necessary in order to most effectively deploy the Francis turbines available at the time. The power plant generates around 565 GWh of electricity a year, and a fish ladder is in planning, as well.
