7,400 meters of NoFloods Barriers deployed in 16 locations!

In December 2016, Denmark was hit by the winter storm Urd. Strong winds caused a considerable increase in the level of the fjord waters of up to 150
– and some places up to 180 cm. Private and public buildings placed close to the water were at risk, and the need for temporary protection was very urgent.

 During the storm, Environment Solutions was in close contact with municipalities and emergency services to ensure that sufficient NoFloods Barriers
(water tubes) in various heights and lengths were available to protect their territory. More than 7,400 meters of NoFloods Barriers were deployed in 16
strategic locations around Denmark. The barriers were able to prevent damage,and provided protection for many public institutions and a number of
private buildings.
