New construction at Töging

Start of construction scheduled for 2020

The architecturally valuable moated castle is connected to the powerhouse by the striking pressure pipes visible from outside. During the construction phase, the power plant was one of the largest hydropower plants in Central Europe, with an impressive capacity of 85 MW. 
The ground-breaking ceremony for the oldest and architecturally most valuable power plant on the Inn took place in 1919. Not only was a weir built but also a 20 km-long headrace channel, the power plant itself, and a 2.8 km-long tailrace channel. 

The construction of a new power plant “Töging NEW” is planned for 2020. The old structures will remain and the new plant will be integrated into the existing environment. More about this under Project Töging NEW.
