Waterway engineering

Hydraulics for waterway engineering

Renewable energies are a cornerstone of the energy transition. Generating electricity using hydropower is the cleanest option. However, this requires waterway structures to limit, control, and guide the water.

Hydraulic drives are important components of such waterway structures due to their large structural components and great acting forces, but also due to their exacting requirements.

Hydraulic drives with emergency closing functions ensure the safety of both plants and the environment.

Corrosion resistance and environmental protection considerations place further exacting demands on such hydraulic drive systems.

The innovative developments by AHP Merkle always provide just the right solution for such applications.
