IGF’s projects include ethohydraulic studies, in this case on a fish-friendly turbine model. This project test under laboratory conditions the passage of fish through a hydrodynamic power plant and the possible damage to migratory fishes.

This is a project funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung), in which a multidisciplinary cooperation group is involved.
