Power plant Jeßnitz

The show-power station at the Lower Austrian Provincial Exhibition 2015 own power consumption and makes injury-free fish migration possible both upstream and downstream,  following the EU Water Framework Directive (WFD). Predominant fish of the Jeßnitz, which feeds the Erlauf are brown trout  accompanied by bullheads. Those brine favouring bullheads easily find the entrance to the electricity-producing fish bypass because of the ground level connection of the hydrodynamic screw.
