For an existing weir in Steinsau – Erstein (FRA) located at the River Ill, Landustrie supplied six Landy hydropower screws. The weir dates back to the end of the 19th century, and ensures that at high water, the lower regions of Erstein and Strasbourg do not flood.
Part of the restoration and renovation of the weir was the installation of hydropower screws to generate sustainable energy.
At the tender, issued by ACAL, the innovative design of the Landustrie hydropower screw solution turned out to be key. The screws will each generate about 30 kW of energy at a capacity of 3 m3/sec and a head of 1.4 m.
For Landustrie it is the seventh hydropower project in France, in which a total number of 16 hydropower screws are installed.
