Royal Smals, a Dutch company involved in hydraulic and civil-engineering works, has released a video about the River Rhine flood protection project, located in Leopoldshafen, just under Karlsruhe, Germany.
At the moment, Royal Smals is removing 160.000 tons of gravel to achieve a salvage location for the storage of about 100.000 m³ of sludge coming from the entrance channel. This material is then transported to the harbor ‘Wörth’.
The dredging of the canal will begin after the gravel reclamation in fall 2016 and the completion of the project is scheduled for the end of this year.
Improving water living environment and high-water protection are also part of this complex project.
