Pump-storage plant Leun
In 2012, we were assigned with the planning of the pump-storage power plant in Leun. These power plants have an important role to play – as currently the only option they are able to economically save energy on a large scale. The client had the goal to use the existing topographical gradient between Leuner Burg and Leuner surface mining 1 energetically. The topographical conditions concerning the necessary slope conditions are given with 340 m + NN ground elevation and a seawater level of 153 m + NN. As well as the required funicular water volume of ~ 450.000m³ in the upper and lower reservoirs.
