The Japanese archipelago extends narrowly from north to south, and is incredibly mountainous.
Water resources must be used effectively based on the social economy, weather conditions and various river forms, and risk of flood damage due to recent climate change must be reduced.
With our extensive track record and strong technical capabilities, NISHIDA TEKKO provides river gates to meet the needs of society.
- About River Gates
River gates are facilities installed in rivers to prevent flooding (flood control) and to draw in water for agricultural irrigation, towns and cities, and power generation.
River gates are broadly categorized as installations that act as levees in case of flooding (floodgates, sluice gates, sluice pipes), which are installed on river tributaries, and installations that utilize running water for all water uses (weirs, headworks), which extend across rivers.
