A series of AWMA Penstocks and Flap Gates were recently delivered to replace aging flood mitigation infrastructure.
The isolation gates consist of top sealing TLF Penstocks manufactured from grade 316 stainless steel and rectangular Flap Gates.
Customisation of the water control gates included engineering the mounting arrangements to cater for the inclined face of the structure. The site’s floodgates are used to control water flow between an inlet and a lagoon, which is influenced by tidal movement and drainage.
The existing penstocks, frames and spindles were removed and replaced with AWMA water control equipment, including non-rising spindles, hand wheels for manual operation and the provision for a portable actuator.
