HE Vuzenica je drugi clen dravske verige.
Gradnja elektrarne se je pricela jeseni 1947. Pomanjkanje delovne sile, mehanizacije in denarja so bili razlogi, da je gradnja elektrarne presegla nacrtovane roke. V elektrarno Vuzenica so vgradili prvo v slovensko Kaplanovo turbino, ki jo je izdelal Litostroj.

The Vuzenica HPP is the second generating stage of the Drava River chain. Construction of the power plant began in the autumn of 1947.
Lack of manpower, machinery and funds were the reasons that the plant's planned finish date was extended. The first Kaplan turbine installed in the Vuzenica HPP was manufactured by Litostroj and it began operation at the end of 1953, though it was fully completed only in 1957.
