Despite the difficult circumstances that 2020 brought with it, we at WWS Wasserkraft can look back on many successful commissioning of hydraulic steel systems worldwide.

Weir Flaps for flood prevention on the “Alm” river in Upper Austria

To ensure the fully-automatic operation of hydropower plants, numerous weir flaps, bottom outlet gates, flushing gates, fish downstream flaps, trash rakes and trash rake cleaning machines were manufactured in a wide variety of designs and implemented on-site by WWS specialists.

Particularly noteworthy are this year’s projects outside of Europe. The tailor-made hydraulic steelwork equipment from WWS was also installed in Asia and America.

For this powerplant in the Caucasus two linear trash rack cleaning machines, several gates and a new control system were delivered.

Here we were able to score with our numerous references, which show that WWS implements individual and optimized solutions, especially for the revitalization of existing systems.

In particular, the complete hot-dip galvanizing of all components makes WWS hydraulic steel elements to reliable components of a longstanding, smooth operation of hydropower plants.
