Küblis power plant
Show all 4 images
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.
All other plant components required for power plant operation were housed in the building arms. During the construction from 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 in Klosters and Schanielabach.
