Fish overcome large level difference with W&B fish lift, Kraftwerk Eglisau- Glattfelden, Switzerland

AXPO Switzerland have successfully completed the installation of two fish-lifts after two years erection time.

Due to the narrow topography a fish- lift was installed at the German side of the river to let fishes overcome the 12 m level difference of the banked-up water. W&B received the order for design, manufacturing and installation of this challenging fish climbing assistance feature. The new fish- lift is significantly smaller and cheaper compared to the existing fish ladders at the swiss bank of the river.
