Stegenwald joint venture power plant
The Stegenwald joint venture power plant is a project of VERBUND and Salzburg AG for more electricity from the Salzach.
The Salzach has been reliably supplying electricity from hydropower for decades. With the Stegenwald joint venture power plant, around 20,000 more households can be supplied with electricity from clean, domestic hydropower. The construction is not creating a classic reservoir in the area of Stegenwald. Instead, the Salzach will be retained as a flowing body of water and additionally widened. Nowadays, a modern fish pass is a part of the ecological standard. The natural jewel of the Salzachöfen Gorge remains unaffected by the construction.
