The construction of a barrage in Greifswald-Wieck is included in the General Plan for Coastal and Flood Protection in Mecklenburg-­Vorpommern under the status of priority urgency. The structure forms an integral part of the Greifswald flood defences to be realised. A particular focus of the work was on the design and thus the urban integration into the sensitive urban space. The project was awarded the German Engineering Award 2016.
