This flood protection barrier reaches new heights
Creating a self-sufficient flood-resilient society.
Last year saw climate events wreak havoc in Europe, with parts of Belgium and Germany pummelled by deadly floods.
In what could be called a narrow escape, the Austrian city of Kufstein, which was hit by severe storms, erected structures called Boxwall barriers, made by NOAQ Flood Protection AB, a Swedish company developing and selling flood protection barriers on the global market. They converted a street into a canal, by placing self-anchoring Boxwall barriers on either side. This led the water past the buildings, protecting them, and down to the river.
