Flood protection

Raising the embankment at Moritzbach in Zwickau

October 2015 marked the official handover of the flood defense system at Moritzbach in the Pölbitz district of Zwickau. Protective barriers were repaired and raised along a roughly 530 meter long stretch of water. And 300 x 50 thyssenkrupp stop logs can additionally be erected if there’s an increased risk of flooding.

The thyssenkrupp stop log system is 0.60 meters high, providing protection against flood levels that statistically occur once every 100 years. Special feature: The posts for the thyssenkrupp stop logs also serve as guardrail posts with hand and knee rails.
