story

Fish ladder at the Tübinger Strasse power plant

The small hydropower plant was built in 1967 as part of the flood protection of the city of Rottenburg and generated 6 GWh of electricity annually with an output of 1 MW . [2] A fish ladder was built in 1995 to ensure passage for fish and other aquatic life . [1] [3] In 2001, the power plant was rebuilt, including a new power house and new turbines installed, [2] but the old weir was still used for the new power plant. [1] The renovation was expected to increase annual electricity production by 30%. [5]The renovation costs amounted to around 3.5 million euros . [4] The opening of the renovated power plant by the Stadtwerke Rottenburg am Neckar in February 2002. [2] [3] In 2009, the military for about two million euros was restored. [6] The operating license for the power plant expires in 2049. [6]

technology

The two Kaplan-bulb turbines generate a volume flow rate of each of 14 m³ / s, and a drop height of 5.80 m in each case an electric power of 630 kW . [3] [4] The power plant only uses a small part of the water in the Neckar.

The weir is designed for a design flood of 640 m³ / s. [2] [3] The approx. 24 m wide weir is designed as a roof weir and in this form the largest in Europe. [1] [6] On the left side of the river there is a combination of bypass water and vertical slot pass to aid fish crossing. [1]
