Upgrading the Kiel Canal – setting up an interim storage area, Germany

Upgrading the Kiel Canal – setting up an interim storage area, Germany
To cope with the steadily rising goods traffic, the Kiel Canal is being rehabilitated and modernized. The Fichtner Group and specifically its Hamburg hydraulic engineering experts are involved in several projects in connection with upgrading this national waterway that is of major importance for Germany. One of the key projects is to widen the canal, in preparation for which first an interim storage area for soil management has to be set up. We were entrusted with the site supervision for construction of the site construction facilities area at Flemhuder Lake.
