Avalanche Prevention in Sørøya / Norway

4 Dicembre 2019

On the Norwegian island Sørøya, the main road between from Hasvik to Sørvær was threatened by rockfall in the summertime and avalanches during the winter. Approximately 1400 meters of the Geobrugg SPIDER® Avalanche system provide prevention from avalanches as well as rockfall protection with energies up to 500 kJ in the snow-free period. This system is also hardly visible, which is especially fundamental in the untouched nature of the island Soroya.
