Floods from the Elbe will in future be diverted Am Aland, and SCHORISCH is building a special weir system
SCHORISCH is manufacturing the closures of the weir system including drive technology, the emergency closures and the screen system for the new flood protection system at Aulosen. In addition, the Karstädter company is supplying the complete EMSR technology.
SCHORISCH Magis has already equipped the Bömenzien weir system for protection against Elbe flooding in the Altmark with the closures, the drive and the installation part for the concrete on behalf of Universal-Bau.
It’s a whim of nature that the communities along the Alands always experience when the Elbe is flooded. For the most part, the masses of water no longer flow towards the North Sea, but into their tributary there and flood the hinterland of the Altmark. Protection will be provided by a viaduct structure for which SCHORISCH Magis’ steelmakers is supplying the technical equipment.
The new flood protection system is being built for 4.8 million euros at Aulosen, a district of the municipality of Aland in the district of Stendal. Located on the left bank of the Alanddeich, the 25-meter-wide and 7.5-meter-high weir will be part of an overall concept. It will ensure that a catchment area of almost 2000 square kilometres will be spared from the floods in the future. The flood protection system near Aulosen will go into operation at the end of 2017. The client is the State Office for Flood Protection and Water Management Saxony-Anhalt (LHW). The general contractor of the universal construction in Perleberg.
