Reactivation of the Dölitz watermill (pre-planning and landscape plan)

Four possible reactivation variations were examined for their technical feasibility and demonstration character. A combination of water wheel and turbine matched the determined selection criteria. The effects of the re-accumulation on the adjoining gatehouse Dölitz proved to be problematic. However, the determined effects can be eliminated and prevented through structural measures. The project was able to demonstrate that it is possible to generate ecological electricity while observing ecological concerns for running waters (detail information in German).
