Frankfurt am Main

January 2011

 

The AQUARIWA Flood System Concept was put into use in Frankfurt on Main in January 2011.   The advantages of the mobile flood protection concept,  nick-named by the press  as "The Frankfurt Barrel" or "The Frankfurt Cylinder"  , were immediately recognized by the fire service specialists. The interior minister, Boris Rhein and the Lord Mayoress at the time, Petra Roth, who personally assembled one of the cylinders, were both persuaded of the advantages of the sand sack replacement.
