The Egglfing-Obernberg, Ering-Frauenstein and Braunau-Simbach power plants were built during the Second World War. This is still evident today, which is why there are precautions for mine defence. Despite the difficult conditions during the construction of these power plants, they are currently important suppliers of the Bavaria and Upper Austria region with electricity generated entirely from hydropower.
