The VERBUND power plant Schwabeck is a run-of-river power plant on the Drava, to the north of the municipality of Lavamünd in Carinthia. It was built between 1939 and 1943. In order to increase the plant’s power output, the easternmost of the four weirs was converted into a fourth machine set in 1995, enabling the maximum output of the power plant to be increased from 60,000 to 79,000 kW. Europe’s tallest fish bypass (fall height of 21 metres) has been in operation at the Schwabeck power plant since 2015.
