Floods in Europe have caused millions of euros worth of damage in recent years, and dykes and embankments needed to be upgraded as a result. We offered our sheet pile walls as a quick and effective solution. These can not only prevent dykes collapsing, but also increase the height and strengthen the dyke’s overall stability. It’s quicker to do this reinforcement work with ready-made steel products than concrete and, we believe, it also has a lower environmental impact. In Germany, we supplied 70,000 tonnes of steel sheet piles for repair works in Löbnitz-Bad Düben and Deggendorf during 2013 and 2014.
