Complex projects and tasks demand integrative solutions based on a broad spectrum of experience. This conviction has systematically characterised our method of working.
We involve participants and affected parties in all projects. We take all boundary conditions into account and address all the possible alternatives.

Fritzbach Power Plant – Sediment-Specific Study Fritzbach

Project objectives

Evaluation of the current sediment balance of the Fritzbach stream between Hüttau and its discharge into the Salzach river (approx. 9.5 km)
Transport calculations of hydraulic and sediment-specific transport capacities at selected sections of the body of water

Client

Location

Austria

Duration

July to November 2012

Services

Sediment-specific and hydraulic analyses

Project description

Characteristic sediment samples were analysed along the Fritzbach stream. Inspections were carried out and characteristic sections of the body of water were selected and documented. Afterwards, the limiting conditions for bed-load discharge were identified. Transport calculations were carried out and the changes caused by the construction of the hydraulic power plant were analysed.
