Title: Fish Climbing Facilities via Prefabricated Concrete Components

In the future, SW Umwelttechnik will treat the passability of running waters across fish climbing facilities according to the EU Water Framework Directive (WFD). Presently there are no technical structures made of prefabricated concrete components, which makes it hard to adapt these to local conditions. Furthermore, conventional systems should be further developed and optimized via hydraulic optimization and adaptation to prefabricated structures and the local application. Through such technically optimized design, the project strives to answer questions related to integration in existing facilities, design of inflow and outflow structures to enhance their functionality, etc.
