ZAT on waterways in the Czech Republic and Slovakia

In the river basins in the Czech Republic but also in Slovakia, ZAT has been operating for many years, both in the management of hydropower plants and in the technology of the hydraulic structures themselves.

The Hněvkovice hydraulic structure, which is located in the Vltava basin, is part of the critical infrastructure and serves as a cooling source for the Temelín NPP. As part of protection against the effects of up to 10,000 years water, we have replaced the original ZAT-E and ZAT-DV systems for controlling the lock chamber and weir flaps with a modern control system of the ZAT SandRA series.


Secure solution for critical infrastructure

The SandRA Z200 system was used to control the hydraulic structure, designed to control extensive technologies. The visualization is based on the In Touch platform and can be accessed both from the operator's workplace and via remote access.

Cyber security is a matter of course for our company and the proposed solution meets the extremely high requirements for cyber security, caused by the affiliation of the hydraulic structure to the critical infrastructure of the Czech Republic.
