The more than 100-year-old hydroelectric power station in the Bernese lakes was replaced in 2015 by the new Hagneck hydroelectric power station. The modern weir with integrated power station increases production by 40 percent without harming the environment. For the walls of the weir, MAX FRANK AG Bösingen supplied sealing cones and fibre-reinforced concrete single spacers.
