Fload and coastal protection

Flood protection Penig - Section B and Dittmannsdorfer Bach

Flood protection Penig

The flood protection concept for the Zwickauer Mulde planned by Tractebel Hydroprojekt (formerly Lahmeyer Hydroprojekt) included protection measures for a 100-year flood for the town of Penig. The route was divided into separate lines in the HWSK: A, B, C1 and D. The section B planned by us runs parallel to Lunzenauer Straße and consists of two types of construction.
