The Environment Agency has officially opened over 7 kilometres of new river and sea defences in the coastal town of Shoreham, helping to keep the community safe from flooding from storms and rising sea levels.
Flood Control International's 450m of glass flood barriers provide the frontispiece for this high profile project.
Flood Control International recently installed three automatic swing flood gates at the James Walker manufacturing plant in Cockermouth Cumbria. The lift-hinged flood gates work on a level threshold so there is no step or ramp over the access. The flood gates operate simply by push button, and complement a further three manual pedestrian gates supplied for the same project.
Flood Control International recently installed a set of automated floodgates to protect a National Grid site at Ponypridd, South Wales. The flood gates allow daily access via one powered gate leaf, with the other manually openable to give a 7m (20ft) wide opening for deliveries of large items such as transformers.
Flood Control International's flood barriers and flood gates now protect a number of critical assets at Thames Water’s Treatment Plant at Rye Meads, London. Over 30 flood barriers of various types are needed including flood doors, pivot barriers and swing-hinged flood gates. This project is one of seven currently awarded to Flood Control International for Thames Water sites.
