The Villach run-of-river power plant was built between 1981 and 1984 and is one of three power plants in the “Obere Drau” (Upper Drava) power plant chain. In addition to Villach, the Paternion and Kellerberg power plants are also incorporated into this chain – all function according to the concept of a pier power plant with two machine sets and three weir fields. The Villach power plant generates around 97 GWh of electricity per year. The power plant has been equipped with a fish bypass since 2007.
