Horkheim weir System (Horkheim, Neckar)
Horkheim weir system is located at Heilbronn-Horkheim. The weir system's location is at waterway kilometre point 120.45A. It has three weir fields. The existing roller gates and the solid construction had deteriorated with age and were in need of complete refurbishment. The overall project was divided into several stages.
Scope of planning:
- New roller gates including carriages and mounted fish-belly flap
- Sill/lateral reinforcements
- Rail systems
- Chain drives including a replacement device
- Submerged inspection gates
- Pier accesses including access to roller gates
- Inspection carriage
Planning was performed in cooperation with our engineering partners DriveCon GmbH and Weber Ingenieure.
