Mühlbach (BZ), Italy
Built 850 metres into the mountain and with a height of 440 metres: these are the record-breaking dimensions of the underground power station at Mühlbach. Two 4-nozzle Pelton turbines provide 20 percent more power than the old generator sets, with a penstock pipe that runs under the mountain, representing a significant improvement in terms of landscape and safety.
