In the past Chevalier Floatels has come up with an innovative solution to provide a fast solution to governments who had a sudden increase of detainees. Planning and building a new prison is a time consuming exercise. First the land to build the prison on, needs to go through a permitting stage and then the prison building needs to be constructed. A process that can take years. Should there be a sudden need for additional prison facilities it is very difficult to solve. Therefore Chevalier Floatels developed the floating prison. Our barges can be very fast transferred into a prison facility.
