Hartmuth Drews Wins IFIA Green Medal in IENA 2017
This special modular construction enables the waterwheel to adapt its diameter to each possible geographic circumstance. This construction can be compared with the bracelet of a watch in which the number of segments defines the size of diameter.
The broadness of the waterwheel can vary in size, as well. Several segment – rims can be added one next to the other on the same shaft.
Tough and rigid segments of stainless steel are produced by laser machines. They are exactly suitable for the centre of the wheel!
Each cell is ventilated so the water stream can float in and out in the best possible way. The wooden arms (larch) are very durable. They don’t need any toxic treatment.
