Mobile Dikes – A Mobile Flood Protection System
The Mobile Dike is a mobile flood protection system. It is a new, very efficient system to protect from flooding. In only a short time and without extra materials or equipment a temporary flood defence system with a height up to 2,6 meters can be realised. With merely four persons, they can place 100 meters of the Mobile Dike per hour. Due to its easy use, the Mobile Dike outperforms other flooding systems. An overview of the system is given here (Dutch).
