Bike Touring Highlight
The new weir system at the hydropower plant in Hausen was inaugurated on July 20, 2019.After 84 years of operation at the Hausen hydropower plant, the structure of the weir system reached its limits, and renovation was inevitable. In a 15-month construction period, two low-maintenance hose weirs with a length of 48 meters were installed, which are significantly more powerful and more precisely controllable than the old weir system. In addition, the entire hydraulic engineering equipment such as contactor boards, rakes and rake cleaning systems, the entire measurement, control and regulation technology and the hydraulic system were renewed. Finally, a new pedestrian and cyclist bridge was built, which connects the two sights of Banz and Vierzehnheiligen and is, among other things, popular with pilgrims.The renovation work will ensure the generation of renewable electrical energy from hydropower over the next few decades. The new facility was inaugurated on July 20, 2019. The guests could take a closer look at the visible facilities on the guided tours offered and have their questions answered by the SÜC staff or have fun on a boat trip on the Main.
