The Lunersee Hydroelectric Power Project will aid in power production and dissemination to both Austria and West Germany.
The Lunersee Hydroelectric Project is one of two large hydroelectric projects approved for Austria in 1955, both aiming to supply neighboring countries, in this case West Germany, as well as the domestic market. The project will produce winter peak power from pumped storage. It will consist of the construction of a small dam across the lower end of Luner Lake (Lunersee) to increase its storage capacity, divert the run-off of a glacier into the lake, and construct 9.7 kilometers of tunnels, siphons, and penstocks to convey water from the lake to a new power house in which generating and pumping units will be installed. The Austrian benefits will include additional power facilities to satisfy demands in Vorarlberg and Tirol. The German benefits include the availability of additional power during peak demand and the sale of off-peak energy to the project for pumping.
