The application of the FishProtector is possible at almost all hydropower plants. It has to be mentioned, that the FishProtector is used for fish protection and not suitable for turbine protection which has to be installed separately (fine screens, fig. 1).
Possible assemblies for upgrading of existing run-of-river plants are included in fig. 2 but represent exceptional cases.
Futhermore the FishProtector is suitable as a barrier for fish swimming into tailwaters of diversion plants or at water withdrawals (fig. 3).
