11.04.2017 | Eglisau-Glattfelden hydro power plant: Elevator and ladder for fish

Free ride for fish

Yesterday Axpo presented its two new fish migration systems at the Eglisau-Glattfelden power plant to the media. A new fish ladder on the Swiss bank and a fish elevator on the German bank facilitate upstream passage. Concretely the fish have to overcome over an elevation of 11.4 metres – this by means of the new ladder in a serpentine line, or more comfortably, by taking the elevator..

In a video, Heinz Wildberger, Manager of the Eglisau-Glattfelden power plant, explains how the systems exactly work.
