Current direction control at Bunthaus

Effectiveness according to development targets of measure

Definition of development targets
  • Finding a possibility to affect the sedimentation patterns within the harbor of Hamburg by using a current direction control at the “Bunthäuser Spitze”.
  • Find a possibility to reduce the sedimentation at the highly frequented turning circle “Altenwerder” and the “Köhlbrand turn”.
  • Find a possibility to reduce the sedimentation within the Port of Hamburg.
Achievement of development targets
  • The results of the numeric modeling showed that it is possible to influence long established sedimentation patterns within the Port of Hamburg only to a certain degree. The sediment load appeared elsewhere within the harbor.
  • In conclusion the degree of reaching the development targets is rather low.
