The masterplan for coastal protection and flood control of the State of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania provided the construction of a flood barrier at Greifswald-Wieck with priority status. The project is an integrated part of the high-water protection to be realised for Greifswald, a city at the German Baltic Sea Coast.

The core of the system is the main gate designed as a radial gate with a span of 21 m. The lateral openings will be protected by sliding gates on either side with a span of 18 m. None of the gates will be visible in the opened position. The radial gate is placed in a cavity on the sill, the sliding gates are hidden in chambers inside the dam; the required emergency and inspection stoplogs will be stored in cavities on and inside the dam.

The administration facilities are concentrated on the Eldena side, their oval control tower forms the most striking element of the structure. A particular focus on the design work was put on the lay-out and thus the urbanistic integration into the sensitive cityscape.
