End of last year’s October, the modernised Dießbach hydro power plant in Salzburg was ceremoniously opened. After a construction period of 1.5 years, Salzburg AG was able to officially restart operating the plant.
With an installed capacity of 104 MW, pumped-storage power plant Hintermuhr in Lungau is the largest one operated by Salzburg AG. It was initially put into operation in 1991 and fitted with a pump turbine in 2008.
The Sohlstufe Lehen power plant, a run-of-the-river power plant in the northern part of the city of Salzburg, is to be commissioned soon. The two generators with a weight of 37 tons are the core pieces of the new plant.
