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