Svašek is nominated for the Dutch water innovation price with “De zoete stuw”! Please vote for us: https://www.waterinnovatieprijs.nl/project/de-zoete-stuw/

The concept of “De zoete stuw” is a weir that uses the density difference between fresh and saline water to flush the saline water and keep the fresh water in the polder.

This is beneficial for agriculture and nature in areas with saltwater intrusion like Texel.

The “zoete stuw” is a product of the coöperation Texel Water, designed by Waterboard Hollands Noorderkwartier and Acacia Water, and simulated with CFD by Svasek Hydraulics and tested by LTO Texel.
