Context

Recurrent episodes of flooding have resulted in a national effort to upgrade and enhance flood defences in various areas in the UK to meet CPNI standards.

RHI Industrials required a 1km stretch of reinforced concrete and sheet piled walls to protect a substation from future flooding.

The team at RHI Industrials worked in partnership with Lochrin Bain to ensure the security fencing system was fully integrated with the substation's new flood defences.

Product supplied

Lochrin 26-pale, high-security Combi™ system incorporating a patented ‘Vee’ slot with countersunk fixing was supplied for the project.

Posts were designed for installation within the flood wall with Gallagher Powerfence topping taking the overall attack barrier to 6.0m. As well as a number of pedestrian and emergency exit gates manufactured by Lochrin Bain, the entrance to site had two Innova 400 ESI cantilever gates using Combi™.

Unlike traditional palisade fencing which can be easily compromised, Combi™ has gained several accreditations including CPNI certification for use on CNI sites nationwide.

Outcome

The project gained several recommendations and awards with Trant Construction picking up both ICE Civil Engineering Project of the Year Award and RICS National Infrastructure Project of the Year Award.
