The Nussdorf power plant is a small hydropower plant on the Danube in the Nussdorf district of Vienna .


In the Vienna district of Nussdorf , a small hydropower plant was built into the Nussdorf weir and lock system at the beginning of the Danube Canal from 2004 to 2005 . The opening took place on August 31, 2005. The plant, which consists of twelve matrix turbines, has a bottleneck capacity of 4.74 MW and generates around 28.11  GWh of electrical energy per year. This corresponds to an average output of 3.2  MW and can supply around 10,000 Viennese households with an average power requirement of 320 W per household.

The project partners of this project are in equal parts Wien Energie , VERBUND-Austrian Hydro Power AG (AHP) and evn naturkraft . The small hydropower plant Nussdorf was awarded the Climate-Star climate protection prize in 2004.

In the spring of 2017 was fish ladder opened. This allows fish to overcome the height difference of 3.6 meters over a length of 322 meters as part of the fish migration .
