In investment the cost is infinitely cheaper than permanent protections and then on the aesthetic level one cannot disfigure a port like that of La Rochelle.

The Water-Gate © solution that has been chosen makes it possible to avoid touching the roads and doing heavy work. These devices are both light and quick to deploy.
Mathieu DUPONT, La Rochelle Risques Littoraux
Compared to the other products offered to us, Water-Gate really is the ideal solution. You unroll it, and it takes care of the rest on its own!
Dominique SIX, Natixis
For us, Water-Gate is an innovative product because it provides a technical solution, partly in terms of flexibility, but also in terms of emergency response thanks to its rapid deployment capabilities.
Jean-François SALMIN, Egis Eau
We’re always on the lookout for systems that can protect us in the event of water level rises, and we purchased the Water-Gate device. Our goal is to protect the RER C line, a very vulnerable asset, from flooding.

Risk of submersion: Water-Gate© selected by the city of La Rochelle

La Rochelle was badly hit by storm Xynthia in February 2010 (6 dead, 280 Million Euros in damage). Rather than rebuilding the identical, the city of La Rochelle has implemented a PAPI (Programme d'Actions de Prévention des Inondations / Flood Prevention Action Program). The decision was made to protect the entire population against the risk "Xynthia + 20cm".
