Think flood protection in a new and innovative way
topocare was founded to think flood protection in a new and innovative way. Started with a strong background in machinery and virtual product development we are more and more integrating IT in our products. This has led us in a very short time to become a machine and software developer, specialized on flood protection.
Considering the climate change, the issue of flood protection is becoming increasingly important for many parts of the world.
Our machines to build flood barriers
We developed two unique and worldwide patented machines to produce earth-filled geotextile tube directly on site in a continuous process. The invented technical solution allows us to build endless tubes.
Started with the idea of selling the machines, we shifted our business model to rent out the machines for constructions. The Pay-on-Production model, which is one target of our IOTA PoC, is the next logical step in further developing our business model.
The topomover is optimized for construction sites and is capable of laying and stapling tubes on each other to build embankments. The following video shows the machine at our test facility.
