ZOO Prague, hippopotamus pavilion reconstruction
This reconstruction is focused on treatment of the pool water so as to be able to view the hippopotami when they’re submerged in the pool, (i.e. most of the time…)
The hippo pavilion was commissioned in 2012, but as the pool water is permanently murky, the animals are not visible while swimming. And as is well known, hippopotami spend most of their life in the water due to their large weight. The zoo commissioned us to design a new water treatment system. Our technical solution was prepared in conjunction with Hannover zoo, was delivered in December 2018, and is due to be installed in Summer 2019.
