Substation Flood Defence

Client:Southwell Engineering

Project: 400kV Substation

Southwell Engineering were engaged as the Principle Contractor on a substantial flood defence project on National Grid’s power station. With the power station located directly on the bank of the river, the primary works on site involved construction of a 2.5m high flood wall around the site to mitigate its significant flood risk.

MM Engineering were awarded the subcontract for providing three flood gates and a flood door to supplement the flood wall whilst allowing for pedestrian and vehicular access and egress. All gates we designed and manufactured to the same height as the flood wall. The flood door stood some height below and was therefore manufactured to provide a complete seal and to withstand the weight of a full head of water.
