AWMA designed, manufactured and installed two TLF topsealing undershot gates 2.5m x 2.1m for this State Water project.
The gates were designed to be retrofitted into the existing actuation system at Waddi Cutting.
Due to issues with the high levels of debris at this site, the gates were designed specifically to reduce the lifetime maintenance on the entire structure.
Nick Cartledge, Mechanical Engineer for the State Water Corporation said “AWMA’s reinforced aluminium undershot gates are a fraction of the weight of the old steel structures which were struggling to operate under the extreme friction loads. With consideration to the high levels of debris experienced at the sites, the gates have been designed to reduce lifetime maintenance on the structure. AWMA were awarded the contract for their ability to provide retrofitted gates that incorporate the existing actuation system”.
