acqua alta Will Examine the Top Subject of Flood Defences at Messe Essen Print E-mail
Tuesday, 04 November 2014 16:41

How can floods be prevented  in a sensible way? What characterises effective management in the event of a disaster? Answers to these questions will be supplied by acqua alta at Messe Essen on November  18 and 19. The congress with an accompanying  exhibition  will offer new solution approaches for flood defences  and will thus be highly topical.  At the end of October,  the Environment  Ministers of the Federal Government and the Federal States passed a resolution concerning  the first flood defence programme which extends  across different federal states and includes over 100 concrete measures - from the shifting-back of dikes via flood polders right up to the elimination of weak spots.  In  this context, acqua alta will offer twice the useful value to everybody involved in flood defences: expert  knowledge at first hand in the congress as well as products proven in practice for stationary and mobile flood defences in the accompanying trade exhibition.

Recognised Ongoing Education for Architects and Engineers

What new challenges the climate change entails for flood defences will be one of the main subject  areas in the acqua alta congress. Other  top subjects  will be  innovative technologies   as  well  as  the  utilisation   of  social   media   in   disaster   management. Architects  and engineers  will profit  from their  participation  in a particular way: The acqua alta congress on November  18 will be recognised as ongoing education. Ingenieurkammer  BAU NRW  ("North-Rhine  Westphalia  Chamber of Construction Engineers") will recognise the event with five time units and Architektenkammer Nordrhein-Westfalen ("North-Rhine Westphalia Chamber of Architects") with three time units. 

Open Afternoon for the Interested Public

Parallel to the congress, 35 specialists  from the sector will show the latest products for flood defences and property protection in the acqua alta exhibition which will thus be fully booked  straight away for the premiere of the event in Essen. The range on offer will extend  from sewer  seals and impermeable  and sheet  pile  walls via mobile
