9 July 2019FEUGIER Environnement participates in the Xynthia program

We still remember February 28, 2010, when Storm Xynthia caused severe flooding in some coastal areas and particularly in the Charente Maritime which had been devastated by this climatic event.

The conclusion is clear: the entire network of dikes is to improve.

The Xynthia program allows to rebuild more than 120 km of dikes in the Charente Maritime to fight against marine submersion and fast flooding on the Atlantic coast, FEUGIER Environment in collaboration with the company LEPINE TP has carried out the protection of the Guois'Dam in Noirmoutier.

FEUGIER Environnement designed and manufactured two cofferdams and a waterproof gate made entirely of stainless steel on behalf of the Charente Maritime Department. In total, twenty linear meters of cofferdams protect the road on 1 meter high.

Satisfied with our collaboration, the department of Charente Maritime renews its confidence. In collaboration with LAURIERE TP, a new dykes protection project on the island of Aix has been entrusted to us with 30 ml of cofferdams to be made.

The whole team is committed to participating in this protection project.
