BAUER Spezialtiefbau GmbH was awarded the vgbe Quality Award 2021 of VGB PowerTech e.V., the technical association of power plant operators, for the Roßhaupten dam rehabilitation project. The prize was awarded at the suggestion of Uniper Kraftwerke GmbH for outstanding quality in the project "Renewal of the Roßhaupten dam seal".
The vgbe Quality Award was launched in 2006 to raise awareness in the industry of the commercial importance of quality. The award recognizes partner companies that have demonstrated exceptional quality in the provision of their supplies and services. After all, quality is the basis for successful, safe and economical plant operation.
Apart from generating environmentally friendly electricity for around 48,000 households, the Uniper “Roßhaupten power plant” with the associated dam structure also contributes to the control of floods and crises. The Roßhaupten dam is the essential element for equalising the water flow and flood safety on the river Lech. The dam is permanently monitored with around 50 measuring points. In 2018, temporary safety measures were implemented immediately on the basis of findings. BAUER Spezialtiefbau GmbH also carried out these measures with a view to the long term. The aim was to create a new dam seal. BAUER Spezialtiefbau GmbH carried out the work with outstanding quality, which certainly also involved a high degree of responsibility.
Dietmar Seitz und Stefan Jaeger accepted the award at the VGB KONGRESS 2021 in Essen.
