Double acting B4 windwatermill

Bosman Watermanagement has installed a double-acting B4 windwatermill in Schipluiden.

A modification has been made to the foundation of this turbine: by using a couple of valves, the pump can pump in two directions. This makes it possible for this B4 wind water turbine to pump an area dry, for example, and to pump the area full again after the valves have been turned.

The double acting wind water turbine can be used in (natural) areas where wetlands have to be created to attract birds to breed in the area. After the breeding season the area can be pumped dry for mowing.
