Wallsee-Mitterkirchen Run-of-River Plant

VERBUND's Wallsee-Mitterkirchen power plant is a run-of-river plant situated on the Danube between the towns of Mitterkirchen in Upper Austria and Wallsee in Lower Austria.

In this agricultural region of the Mostviertel and Mühlviertel, the power plant is not only an important supplier of electricity generated entirely from hydropower but also offers cars, pedestrians and cyclists an important crossing over the Danube. 

The power plant impresses with its output of 210 MW. This capacity is currently being further improved by VERBUND through investments in increasing efficiency. Until 2024, one generator will be replaced every year, which is expected to increase generation by 12 million kilowatt hours through increased efficiency.
