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 […]
Energy from drinking water – Inauguration of the Francis turbines in Arnstadt and Bienstädt The “Thüringer Fernwasserversorgung” in Erfurt, Thuringia, operates drinking water supply stations in several cities in Thuringia. W&B have delivered a Francis turbine unit with induction generator for each of the facilities in Arnstadt and Bienstätt. The output 0f 57 kW respectively […]
The new power station Bürglen of the AXPO- Kleinwasserkraft AG was formally inaugurated on September 5th, 2016. With the new Kaplan turbine of W&B the regular annual production could be increased by 40% to 7 GWh. In addition to the new turbine complete new hydraulic steel structures were delivered by W&B, mainly: 1 fully automatic […]
The formal inauguration of the hydro power station “Metzeral” was celebrated with an open day on June 27th. Many hydro-interested visitors from the region, as well as politicians and industry representatives attended the ceremony when the start button was pushed and the W&B crossflow turbine began to turn. This power station was built exceptionally eco-friendly. […]
W&B received the order for revision and modernization of the hydro power plant Gundelfingen at the river Danube Ordering party is the “Obere Donau Kraftwerke AG (ODK) with it’s plant operating company BEW (Bayrische Elektrizitätswerke GmbH) Augsburg, Germany. Two vertical Voith Kaplan turbines were installed in the power station Gundelfingen in 1964. The two identical […]
For energy recovering in drinking water supply systems, hydro turbines have been established for years mainly for larger power output. For economical reasons smaller units had been provided with reverse running pumps. Unfortunately reverse running pumps offer acceptable efficiencies only in a very limited head- and flow range. To make use of the benefits of a turbine instead of […]
Reason to be proud! The new powerstation produces double as much energy as the old plant did. And this powerstation sets new standards in environmental protection: All hydraulic steel structures were made to let salmons and other unfrequent kinds of fishes pass the power station to reach their preeding areas.
Drinking water power station Maubach with 2-nozzle Pelton turbine and complete electric control equipment was successfully integrated into the existing sophisticated power and control system of the water distribution system.
Wiegert & Bähr was selected supplier for the complete hydraulic steel structures and trashrack with trashrack cleaner for this project at extreme mountainous and weather conditions.
This new power station is equipped with one Wiegert & Bähr Kaplan turbine. At a head of 5,15 m the turbine produces an output of 1.2 MW. The generator is of the permanent magnetic water-cooled type.
Wiegert & Bähr recieve order for energy recovery turbine of 15 km drinking water pipeline. The 2-nozzle Pelton turbine has an output of 170 kW.
