|The recent flood of last year showed that there is an urgent need for reliable, rapidly deployable, mobile flood protection systems.
It is totally unacceptable that we have to use sandbags again and again.
Noah GmbH has developed such a system. We tested prototypes of our system in the Hubert Engels Laboratory for Hydraulic Engineering and Technical Hydromechanics of the Dresden Technical University and found that it is stable and tight up to a water level of 1.20 metres.”
Statement by Dr. Hans-B. Horlacher, university professor, certified engineer, managing director of the Institute for Hydraulic Engineering and Technical Hydromechanics of the Dresden Technical University
