King tides regularly flood local communities on Saibai Island
Saibai Island is located in the Torres Strait, north of Australia’s state of Queensland.
AWMA were engaged by Koppens Developments to supply tidal control gates. The TLF topsealing penstocks were manufactured from marine grade aluminium, with non-rising spindles and manual hand wheels.
Koppens’ Project Manager and Senior Engineer was impressed with AWMA’s products and services and looks to utilise them across multiple sites.
