Project in numbers

  • width 6,0 m x length 45,0 m Applied dimensions of the chamber
  • min. 3,0 m Depth of water above the stoppers
  • pro plavidla do 300 t s rozměry 38,5 m délky a 5,05 m šířky Užití

Exceptionality of the structure

Together with the electrical wiring, a control system was built, the centre of which is a PLC computer located in the control room, which manages and coordinates individual subsystems according to the current flow. Together, it controls the chamber lock, the weir flaps and the sport channel closure gate.
