Spittelau Waste Incinerator Plant
Spittelau Waste Incinerator Plant is a thermal plant for waste treatment in the city of Vienna, which was completed in 1971.
It was redesigned by the great architect and artist Friedensreich Hundertwasser after it was destroyed by fire in 1987.
Located in the northern part of the city near a Danube Canal and is one of three plants that belong to "Wien Energie". With an output of 460 MW, the plant is the second largest producer for the heating system of the city of Vienna.
The plant was renovated with a steam reduction (1986-1989) and a denitrification system and reduction of dioxins (1989) and is currently an 'environmentally friendly' power plant. At the same time, the external appearance of the heating plant was redesigned by Friedensreich Hundertwasser and today stands out among the surrounding industrial buildings, becoming a tourist attraction.
