Weir Alsace, France

For an existing weir in Steinsau - Erstein (F) 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.

In the spring of 2016 the construction of a new hydropower plant in the Dommel river near Sint-Michielsgestel started. The existing dam in the river is equipped with a Landustrie hydropower screw and will generate renewable energy for approximately 200 households.

The Dommelstroom project is the first cooperative hydropower power plant in the Netherlands, initiated by Bram and Jan Taks, father and son, both of Energy Cooperative Dommelstroom. The project is funded by means of crowd funding, all investors become co-owners of the plant.

The LANDY hydropower screw dimensions 4 meter in diameter and 6 meter in length. The semi-compact screw will be supplied with a self-supporting metal trough. Both generator and gearbox will be positioned on a separate concrete foundation. The LANDY hydropower screw is completely fish-friendly. Landustrie acts as the main contractor commissioned by Energy Cooperative Dommelstroom. This first Dutch cooperative hydropower scheme will be officially opened November 5th, 2016.

Sluice III in the Wilhelminakanaal near Tilburg is equipped with a Landustrie hydropower screw pump. This means that the installation is used both to pump water and also to generate sustainable energy for approx. 200 households. The project is initiated by Rijkswaterstaat, part of the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment. Landustrie is responsible for the design of this innovative hydropower screw turbine and supplies both the mechanical and electrical equipment. The main function of the screw pump is to monitor the water level in the upper reach of the Wilhelminakanaal. As a subsidiary function the screw generates renewable energy when water should be discharged. The screw pump is equipped with a movable chute point in order to accommodate both functions.  Another special feature is the fish-friendly version of the hydropower screw. It is the longest screw installed in the Netherlands so far. The screw dimensions 20.5 meter long and 3.4 meter diameter.
