Replacement construction of the Kleuterbach culvert
Johann Bunte GmbH&Co. KG
Bad Bentheim branch
At km 42.431 N the Dortmund-Ems Canal passes over the upper Kleuterbach culvert. The planned channel widening of the Lüdinghausen–Senden section requires that the existing culvert be replaced. This will be built using the immersed-tube-method throughout its length. Submersible pumps will be necessary for floatingthe steel pipe culverts into place and sinking them.
Pumps of types KTZ47.5 and KRS2-69 were used to control the flooding of the steel pipes and to sink them accurately.
