Flotsam deflector boathouse Rheinpolizei

The boathouse of the police patrol boat on the banks of the Rhine in Grossbasel was to be protected from floating debris. WALO received the order to erect a corresponding flotsam deflector.

Project description

The boathouse of the police patrol boat on the banks of the Rhine in Grossbasel was to be protected from floating debris. WALO was awarded the contract for the construction of an appropriate flotsam deflector. The system had to be functional at both low and high water. An approx. 12 m long mechanical protection device was installed above the existing boat garage. The deflector was anchored with three dolphins (piles) in the bottom of the Rhine.
In order to reduce the dynamic pressure on the system, as well as the undercurrent and the formation of turbulence, a rake was installed below the float. This rake holds back larger flotsam or deflects it.
