SLA to design new climate adaptation project against flooding in Limfjorden

One of Denmark’s largest climate adaptation projects, the narrowing of the Thyborøn Canal to secure the entire western part of Limfjorden against floods, is moving closer. SLA, together with Rambøll and consultant Rasmus Johnsen, have won the tender to design the next phase of the project which is expected to cost 700 million DKK.

The project involves narrowing the Thyborøn Canal to protect against storm surges while considering climate change, sailing conditions, environmental conditions and water flow in the entire Western Limfjord.

The project will also support the local public life by creating a new nature-based experience center for water attractions and nature activities in the area around Thyborøn and Agger.

“With the climate adaptation of Thyborøn Canal, we not only secure the Western Limfjord against storm surge. We also create a wide range of strong nature experiences and activities on both land and water to benefit both local citizens and future visitors. Thus, Thyborøn Canal joins SLA’s long line of coastal protection and development projects on the West Coast of Jutland and in the Limfjord.”

— Karsten Thorlund, head of SLA’s office in Aarhus
