Hydrostadium has created an R & D program to develop a new concept of an artificial river called the RiverBox®.
It is about achieving a river built from transportable modules arranged on scaffolding,
all within a watertight basin. It’s easy to vary the slope from one facility to another. Thus the navigation difficulties are scalable and can move from a white water discovery course to Olympic events.
3 technical features
- A 250m whitewater course can be installed on an area smaller than a football field.
- The volume of water required is equivalent to one and a half times the water volume of an Olympic swimming pool.
- The energy power necessary for the pumping station is similar to the one needed by a chairlift.
Designed for events like the Olympic Games
