Engadine storage power stations

The Livigno reservoir is a model of international cooperation in the interests of electricity generation, while the Ova-Spin power station with its compensating basin shows how water extracted from the River Inn can be converted into valuable stored energy. The Pradella - Martina station (completed in 1994) is embedded in a rocky gorge 70 meters long, 22 meters wide and 34 meters high, directly at the Austrian border.
