    The clip shows the power plant at Lake Woerthersee in Carinthia, Austria. Build in 1924 it was the first power plant of its kind in Carinthia. The power plant is still situated near Velden (approx. 20 km from Klagenfurt) and is now a museum and can be visited during summer. At peak times the machinery is still delivering electricity for Carinthia.
