Kraftwerk Küblis Turbinenhalle

The chosen cross shape of the Küblis power plant had the advantage that a window to the machine room from the command room provided an optimal overview.

Description

All other parts of the plant necessary for the operation of the power plant were accommodated in the arms of the building. During the construction of 1919 - 1922, three three-phase machines, two single-phase groups, a self-consumption group and a converter group were installed. From March to December 2005, the machine room was completely rebuilt and the six machines were replaced by two new machine groups, each with two Pelton turbines and a generator. In Küblis, the water discharged via the Klosters and Schlappin power plants is processed together with water from the Landquart catchments in Klosters and the Schanielabach.
