AQUARIWA-Tests in Cologne

January 2012

 

The operation in Cologne during the floods of Januar 2012, served initially as a test under real conditions. Reinhard Vogt, leader of  flood control system  (Hochwasserkompetenzzentrum)  in Cologne, wanted to make a thorough test of the AQUARIWA System in the old bastion of Cologne. Despite the difficult foundations (cobblestones), the  AQUARIWA System passed its probation trials with flying colours.
