Bodendorf-Mur Run-of-River Power Plant

VERBUND’s Bodendorf-Mur power plant is a run-of-river power plant situated on River Mur in the municipal area of St. Georgen ob Murau in Styria.

Technical Description 

The Bodendorf-Mur power plant was built between 1979 and 1982. Together with the medium pressure level on the Paalbach, Turrachbach and Minibach streams, the low pressure level on the river Mur is housed in one sole powerhouse in Bodendorf. In 2007, the control room was newly refurbished and the control and communications system as well as the machine automation were renewed. A five blade propeller Kaplan turbine generates on average around 34 GWh of electricity per year.
