Flood protection with BIOGEST® flow limiter

For flood protection of a village near Munich, BIOGEST® installed in October 2020 this special designed automatic operating flow control unit, type Alpheus AH. The flow regulator is designed to control 5.900 l/s without any electrical energy, only by float. That secures the reliable operation even in case of power failure, where conventional electrical gate solutions do failure.

BIOGEST® was chosen for this project as the Expert on flow control and flood protection. We worked close with the consultant to provide the final solution. The operation safety was one key point to choose a power free solution. As these flood areas are always upstream and outside of endangered villages, electrical supply is cost intensive to provide and to maintain. A power free solution from BIOGEST® is the safest and economic best solution.
