The Schärding-Neuhaus power plant was built between 1959 and 1961 as the second power plant of the “border power plants” group. The power plant group is noted for its geographical location on the Inn and Danube, where they form the border between Austria and Bavaria. Installed in the power plant are four Kaplan turbines which generate around 542 GWh of electricity per year and supply the region with valuable hydropower.
