Removal of duckweed from the local drafting water reservoir.
Company carrying out the works:
Municipality of Hamberge (County Stormann, Schleswig-Holstein)
PLA Pumpen und Anlagen GmbH, Kaltenkirchen
Mr. Andreas Rössig (Field Sales Team North)
In the summer a lot of additional duckweed grows in standing water. An exchange of oxygen is hindered by this, displacing animals and plants. This is prevented by suctioning away the duckweed. The reservoir has a a surface area of approx. 500 m².
A free-floating 8-FSP scum skimmer was used. The entire pond surface of 500 m² was cleaned. In three hours, 7 cubic meters of duckweed were suctioned into prepared containers.
