Water is one of the most potentially difficult environments for steel. The SPC team has years of experience in ensuring the long-term integrity of steel water defence systems, even in a subsea environment.
In the 1970s, SPC consultants were involved in treating the Thames Barrier and floodgates to a 25 year life coating. A survey carried out in 2014 concluded that this is now expected to last approximately 40 years before requiring major maintenance.
SPC has worked on many types of barrier and floodgate projects throughout the Middle East, Asia and other parts of the world.
Our previous projects include:
– Thames Barrier and floodgates, London
– Water project, Jordan
– Floodgates, Wisbech, UK
– Kotri Barrier, Pakistan
– Barking Barrier, Essex, UK
