Teufelsbruck Run-of-River Power Plant

Right where the Inn River forms a tight loop is where the Teufelsbruck power plant is located, in the northeastern part of Upper Bavaria near Schambacher Höhe.

Technical Description 

The Teufelsbruck power plant was constructed from 1935 to 1938 and represents the first use of the bay-type power plant on the river Inn, along with the plants constructed at the same time in Wasserburg and Gars. The powerhouse located on the left bank, on the inside of the river bend, contains five machine units which are each made up of one vertical Kaplan turbine and a built-in three-phase generator. In this way the Teufelsbruck power plant generates annually around 150 GWh of electricity. Between the powerhouse and the plant building on the shore, a pool with a fish ladder had already been planned when the plant was being constructed.
