Flood protection

Raising the Elbe dike in Bleckede-Alt Garge

Due to changes in flood protection regulations the flood defenses in Alt Garge – a district of Bleckede – had to be significantly raised. Our sheet pile walls are used where residents have no direct view of the river. They consist of Larssen 716 sections in lengths of 7.60 and11. 70 meters and Larssen 628 sections with a length of 11.00 meters. The piles were deliberately left uncoated – the reddish tone created by corrosion blends harmoniously into the landscape.
