Customer: Gemeinschaftskraftwerk Inn GmbH (Inn Joint Power Plant)
Phases: Implementation and commissioning
Period: 2013-2010

The Inn community power plant (CPP) currently under construction at the upper Inn river near the Swiss-Austrian border is the largest hydroelectrical power plant to be built in the Alpine region for many years. An approx. 15 m high weir is being built below Martina to collect the water. The water is ducted in an underground pressure tunnel to the power plant in Prutz (A), where the electricity is generated.

Sub-projects on Swiss land are the storage area with flood protection dam near Martina as well as the weir structure with fish lift up and down
