Double Ship lift in Hohenwarte

 

Doppelsparschleuse Hohenwarthe © www.AIRlebnistrip.de

The double ship lift, designed as a water saving lock, provides access from the Mittelland Canal to the Elbe-Havel-Canal for ships and vessels. The overall difference of upper and lower water levels is 18.5m.

The use of water saving basins clearly shows the sustainable and ecologically responsive design of the lock where, in comparison to typical lock facilities, up to 60% of the water can be “saved” by remaining in the lock.
The lock was primarily built to provide access to the canal for vessels and ships heading for Berlin.
