Profile GE - Animal protection
After seeing accidents like the one in the first photograph one too many times, in other words, deer or other animals falling into a canal supplying a hydroelectric plant, competent authorities asked the power company to “close off” the canal.
The concrete sides of the canal were steep and made it difficult for any animal falling into it to exit the water.
After careful analysis and with the support of our experts, the engineering firm contracted for the job came up with a solution using our GE profile, which was found to be economically viable (3 km of canal had to be covered) and environmentally acceptable.
The profile provides a safe surface for animals and pedestrians to walk on without hindering the water flow. The anchoring system is secure while allowing for easy removal in case of maintenance work.
