Waterboard Rijn & IJssel in Holland performed a two day high water trainings excercise. During this event the installation of a 35m long BoxBarrier flood defence system has been compared with the regularly applied sandbags and Big Bags.
The BoxBarrier system will be presented during the French-Dutch seminar on High Water Prevention. The seminar was held in Paris on the 27th of November and was organised by the Dutch Embassy in corporation with the French ministry of Infrastructure and Environment.
De Gelderlander, one of the largest Dutch regional newspapers presented an article on the BoxBarrier system which has recently been applied at the Dutch Water Museum.
