Technology made in Taunusstein protects against monsoon flooding in Thailand and Vietnam

A huge stormwa­ter reten­tion basin, part­ly with dammed embank­ments, has been con­struct­ed at the new indus­try park WHA East­ern Seaboard Indus­tri­al State 4, in Ray­ong, Thai­land, to safe­guard against mon­soon flood­ing.  The no-main­te­nance and pow­er-free flow reg­u­la­tor HydroSlide MINI DR 1400, here with an out­flow of 4,000 l/s, pro­tects the low­er lying area against stormwa­ter over­flow . The project began in 2018 and went into oper­a­tion in June 2019 fol­low­ing the suc­cess­ful fit­ting of the HydroSlide regulator.

The enor­mous stormwa­ter reten­tion basin will pro­vide tem­po­rary stor­age for the immense vol­umes of rain that fall dur­ing the mon­soon peri­od. After the rainy sea­son, the water can flow at a con­trolled rate into the receiv­ing waters. It is most­ly large inter­na­tion­al­ly oper­at­ing con­cerns that have set­tled in the indus­try park and have required pro­tec­tion against annu­al flood­ing, thus ensur­ing their unin­ter­rupt­ed pro­duc­tion capacity.

Stein­hardt works close­ly togeth­er in plan­ning and imple­men­ta­tion of flood pro­tec­tion projects with our local agency in Thai­land, Hydro­con­cept Asia Co., Ltd., and in Viet­nam with Viet­nam Siam Trad­ing Co., Ltd.

The first suc­cess­ful­ly com­plet­ed projects to pro­vide ben­e­fits for the local pop­u­la­tion can be viewed in the pho­tos that show the erec­tion of mobile flood pro­tec­tion at sev­er­al loca­tions with­in the Bangkok metrop­o­lis. Around 20 tons of stain­less steel frames and alu­mini­um pro­files were shipped from our pro­duc­tion line at Taunusstein, Ger­many, for the 35 gate­ways and entrance which have been equipped with pro­tec­tive measures.
