Töging Run-of-River Plant

The VERBUND power plant at Töging is a canal power plant situated on the almost 23 km long Inn canal in the city of Töging in Bavaria.

Technical Description 

The ground breaking ceremony for the oldest and architecturally most valuable power plant on the river Inn took place in 1919. A weir facility, a 20 km long upstream canal, and the power plant itself with its 28 m long downstream canal were constructed. The plant was conceived as a canal power plant because the construction of the canal allowed for a drop height of around 30 m at the Töging site, which was necessary in order to most effectively deploy the Francis turbines available at the time. The power plant generates around 565 GWh of electricity a year, and a fish ladder is in planning, as well.
