Directing Water And Revitalization

The power plant in Schöftland had problems with silting and debris behind the outlet. Again, we utilised our knowledge according to the explanations of Viktor Schauberger in this customer order. The water coming from the rotor case could not drain freely. Following installation of a blade that creates a water vortex, it is easy to see that the water remains calm along the banks and that the force downstream of the blades is focused on the centre of the «Suhre».

Water vortices created by the blades continue for up to 40 metres. Within three weeks, the debris was cleared and the initial drain rate was achieved again. Water quality improved to the point where juvenile fish could again be found in the calm shore zones within about six weeks after installation.
