Aqua Guardian manufactures and delivers powerful barriers for use in hydropower industry. Both for use in watercourses and on reservoirs. The barriers have two main functions, security for third parties and security for operation.
Our Most Hardy Product
We provide our barriers both as single and double solutions. We also have double solutions with a choice of depth skirts, grids or with a walkway. These are year-round installations designed and developed to withstand the harsh Scandinavian climate.
Security for third parties
By third person safety, we mean safety for people travelling near or in watercourses or reservoirs. Special attention to persons in canoes, kayaks or small boats.
By safety in operations, we mean gathering of- or leading floating elements aside to prevent clogging of spillways and intakes. Floating elements could be small such as twigs or grass, but also bigger elements such as timber, floating turf islands or other heavy floating objects, which might appear in floods.
The barriers can be delivered in both open and closed versions. The barriers can also be delivered as a double installation with deep skirts, deep grids and walkways.
The barriers themselves will never be able to eliminate the risk of accidents and incidents occurring. However, the installation as a measure based on a risk and vulnerability analysis must reduce the risk of accidents and incidents occurring.
