GEIGER MultiDisc® and GEIGER® Fish Protection Technologies in Action

Our showcase GEIGER MultiDisc® and our Fish Protection Technologies are currently on display in the virtual tour of the power station in Moorburg (south of Hamburg).

The Moorburg plant will secure an economic and environmentally-compatible supply of electricity (a gross output of 2 x 820 Megawatt) and district heating (an output of  2 x 120 Megawatt) in the region on a long term basis.

To guarantee an environmentally-friendly water intake, a  GEIGER®-Fish Repelling System prevents fish lingering around the water intake area. Coarse screens (GEIGER® Cable-Operated Grab Cleaners and mesh screens (GEIGER MultiDisc®) serve as a mechanical barrier to the fish ,which are still extracted together with the water. The cooling water is withdrawn from the Elbe with such a low velocity that even small fish are able to swim against the current. These fish are retrieved/extracted from the cooling water by an innovative Fish Return System and returned back to the river via a flushing pipe. Click here to see the whole virtual tour.
