The power station consisted of two power plant units: unit 1 of 405 MW and unit 2 of 352 MW. Unit 1 was commissioned in 1985, and unit 2 in 1987. Unit 1 was Austria's only supercritical coal plant. It was closed on 15 Apr 2015. Unit 2 remains online. Fuel is Czech and Polish coal. The stack is 210 meters, the tallest in Austria. Unit 1 was owned by Verbund, and unit 2 is owned by EVN.[1]

Unit 2 is planned for closure in 2025, when Austria plants to phase out all coal plants.[2] In May 2019, EVN moved up the retirement for unit 2, to autumn 2019, as Austria sped up its coal phaseout to 2020.[3]
