The Gabersdorf power plant was built between 1972 and 1974. Two Kaplan bulb turbines generate an annual average of approx. 68 GWh of electricity.
Turbines and generators: Two Kaplan bulb turbines with an average head of 8.6 metres generate a bottleneck capacity of 14,500 kW. Each of the two directly coupled three-phase synchronous generators has a nominal output of 10,000 kVA.
Transformers: A 20,000 kVA machine transformer raises the generated energy from 6 kV to 110 kV. Transmission is to the Leibnitz substation of STEWEAG.
Weir system: The three-field weir system is closed with pressure segment gates and weir flaps. Both the gates and flaps can be controlled hydraulically via pull and push cylinders.
