VIDEO: Importance of Kreetsand Project Highlightd
The Hamburg Port Authority (HPA) has just released this very interesting video about the Kreetsand, a pilot project in the framework of the Elbe tidal concept.
This project will create additional space for the Elbe river on the east side of the Elbe island of Wilhelmsburg.
The tidal volume will be enlarged and the tidal hub reduced as a result of these river engineering measures.
At the same time, new possibilities for an integrative planning and implementation of a variety of interests and concerns relating to flood protection, use of the port, water management, nature conservation and recreation areas will be dealt with.
