The Drava travels around 749 km from its source in South Tyrol to its confluence with the Danube near Osijek in Croatia. This makes the Drava the fourth longest Danube tributary.
The water from the Upper Tauern mountains is the major source of energy for VERBUND's hydropower plants in Carinthia. The Drava, Möll and Malta rivers and numerous glacial streams provide the energy for valuable hydropower electricity. When constructing our facilities, we create ecological niches and retreats. Fish by-passes and biotopes help to preserve the biodiversity of flora and fauna.
