Project: Immersion storm-surge barrier Venice

Strukton Immersion Projects collaborated on the construction of the Chioggia Flood Barrier, which is part of the MOSE Project, a storm-surge barrier being built in Italy to enable the Venetian Lagoon to be sealed off from the Adriatic Sea. The storm-surge barrier is being built at the three inlets to the lagoon: at Lido, Malamocco and Chioggia. The storm-surge barrier is made up of a system of caissons containing movable flood gates. The system will only be closed in case of extreme high water, similar to the Maeslant Barrier in the Netherlands.
