In 2012 the Georgian government decided to install DEVI indoor heating in the buildings and snow melting systems outside on roofs, roads and ground at their customs site in Kazbegi at the Georgian and Russian border. This is one of the most picturesque places in the Middle East with its magical cemeteries and old churches surrounded by wild mountains. In 2014 this peaceful area was hit by the worst flooding in decades caused by a huge amount of snow from the mountains. The flooding had a devastating effect on the whole area. The damage caused by this hit a devastating effect flooding all the buildings, wrecking walls, roofs and even wiping away parts of the roads.
The government needed to rebuild and repair the site immediately and were looking at a huge task in front of them. When they had pumped out the water from the buildings they immediately requested a calculation on how much it would cost to install and or repair the DEVI systems. This was where they were pleasantly surprised for the first time during the disaster. When the electrical specialist came he just switched on the thermostats, and… done, the system was still working!
Everyone was highly impressed by this display of quality made by the DEVI products that were used.
