Dyrhoff enters Latvian market with Aiviekste Hydro project


Dyrhoff recently extended its presence in Eastern Europe, with the commissioning of the new Obermeyer spillway gate at the Aiviekste Hydro Power Plant, operated by Latvenergo Group the state-owned energy utility. Keen to maintain its reputation as one of the most environmentally friendly energy companies in Europe, Latvenergo ensures its power plants benefit from the latest technology and has opted to update the 90 year old plant with two fully automatic Obermeyer gates. The deal was brokered by Dyrhoff’s newly appointed agent in the region, Tilts Ltd.

Measuring 2.32m high x 55m long and 1.98m high x 14m long, the two Obermeyer gates will allow full regulation of the water intake at the site, providing the oldest hydropower plant in the country with a state of the art system for water control.
