Flood Proof Holland

Themes: Water & Maritime


Flood Proof Holland is a test and showcase location for semi-full-scale temporary innovative modular and flexible flood defences. It enables testing and optimisation of the innovation. It also increases reliability, which is key because these flood defences are to be applied in emergencies.


In various open air basins, temporary, modular and flexible flood defences can be built. Floods can be simulated in each basin to test the strength of the innovation. Obstacles can be placed to simulate urban situations.
