The Langenprozelten pumped storage power plant near Gemünden am Main in the Lower Franconian district of Main-Spessart (Bavaria) was put into operation in 1976. The owner is Donau-Wasserkraft AG.With its two Francis pump turbines, the hydroelectric power station has a turbine output of 164 MW and a pump output of 154 megawatts. The upper reservoir is about 300 meters above the lower reservoir and is connected to it by a 1.3 km long tunnel. The maximum drop is 320 m. The upper reservoir has a capacity of approx. 1.5 million m³. The maximum energy storage capacity is 950 MWh.The Langenprozelten pumped storage plant only supplies traction current and is an important peak load power station in the traction current network. The grid connection is at the 110 kV high-voltage level in the DB Energie power grid.The body of water dammed in the lower basin is the Sindersbach. In summer it usually has no water. Therefore, if necessary, water is pumped up from another retention basin, which is 1.2 km below the lower basin.Both shut-off structures (upper and lower reservoir) are rockfill dams with an asphalt concrete outer seal.Source: de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pumpspeicherkraftwerk_Langenprozelten

Great view with the opportunity to linger

However, the path further downhill is very difficult to drive. Ran through by wild boar, many branches criss-crossing and also many loose stones. Only floating up the mountain is possible. It's not much fun going down.
