In 2010, Verbund began a 3yr project to completely modernize the plant with three new Kapan sets replacing the 80yr old, 6-MW Francis machines. New control systems were also supplied. One of the three original units is on display in a new exhibition building in the power house. In total the three old sets had over 600,000 running hours.
