Flood Control International recently completed a flood defence project in Havant for Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks to protect a number of marshalling kiosks against flooding. The design chosen was for a demountable flood barrier around the full perimeter (to allow full access when required) with a pedestrian swing hinged floodgate for daily / more frequent access. The solution saved formwork/ concreting activities on the site and the site work duration was drastically reduced from a more traditional approach.
Flood Control International recently installed a number of demountable flood barriers in a heritage building development at Brandon Yard. The flood barriers had to integrate well with feature granite corbels and brickwork walls. This was achieved using specially fabricated end channels which were later powder coated to match the new windows/doors behind.
Flood Control International's containment gates are now protecting the Colorado River from any possible future oil leakages or contaminated sprinkler water from the transformers at Glen Canyon Dam in Arizona.
When complete, the fourteen sets of double gates will protect each transformer bay up to over 5ft height. The gates are ‘off-seating’ which means that they work with the water pressure trying to push them off the wall, and are also situated over the rail tracks used to position the transformers.
