- Annual energy generation 125 Gigawatt hours (GWh)
- Extracted water quantity 9 m3/s
- Gross fall height 488 m
- Storage volume 60,000 m3
- Volume of balancing pond 60,000 m3
- Start of construction expected 09/2020
Improving the ecological situation
The planning and construction of the new Obervellach II power station offer many advantages for the environment. Despite the increase in the self-generation of traction current, the overall ecological situation is also vastly improved. Minimum flow rates are achieved in line with the state of the technology, the lives of residents in the vicinity of existing power stations will be significantly improved by relocating the power station to the existing industrial estate as a means to reduce operational noise and vibrations. A legally valid UVP notification has been in place since February 2016.
Information and coordination
The implementation of the new power station Obervellach II is closely coordinated with neighbouring residents and municipal governments. During the construction phase general project information as well as current project status are shown at the infobox in Obervellach, which is accessible to the public.
