Technical Description 

The Dionysen power plant was constructed between 1942 and 1945 and between 1948 and 1949. Plans for a power plant on the river Bruck/Mur nevertheless go back all the way to 1906. Between 1999 and 2001, the upper water canal underwent a complete renovation and also rooms for staff and windows were renovated and exchanged. Furthermore, both Kaplan turbines were modernised. These generate on average an annual output of around 86 GWh. The Dionysen power plant is, moreover, equipped with a fish ladder.
