The six machine sets each consist of one Kaplan bulb turbine each with a rated output of 30,300 kW and a three-phase synchronous generator with a rated output of 32,000 kVA. Two groups of three machine sets are allocated to one block transformer each, with both block transformers being connected to two indoor switchgears.
The four weirs consist of pressure segments with flap gate on top and stop log gates. Each weir field can be closed off for inspection work in the headrace or tailrace by stop logs that are stored in the area of the headrace stop log niches.
The Freudenau power plant was built between 1992 and 1998 in the “wet construction method”, i.e. in the river bed, and co-financed by EVN and Wien Strom GmbH.
