Our Flood Protection Demo Kicked Off In SABA
We were back in France, south this time in the beautiful region of Provence. The French public entity of SABA (Syndicat d'Aménagement du Bassin de l'Arc) had requested a demonstration of the abilities of our flood protection barriers (NoFlood Barriers) and we heeded the call.
SABA is an inter-municipal organization advising cities and villages in 25 municipalities with particular attention to flood management and safety. The river concerned is named l'Arc, which ends up in Etang de Berre, an inner sea bordering the Marseille airport.
SABA has over the years gained extensive experience in managing floods and aquatic environments, and they use their expertise to advise member municipalities on how best to manage flooding in the affected areas.
The demonstration was held on June 19th 2018.
Then It Was Off To Aix-en-Provence For Our Final Flood Protection Demo In France
The following day our team went to Aix-en-Provence, a city with roots in Roman times and one of the larger urban centers in the area.
The risk management department of the city had requested a demo of our flood protection barriers, which took place at a sports complex. Representatives from the SDIS (firefighters), the metropolis and the State (both within the area of risk management) were invited to witness how our barriers could help prevent flooding.
Below are some snapshots of the event.
