THE PROBLEM

E.ON are the UK's leading power and gas companies - generating electricity, and retailing power and gas. Over five million people use E.ON for their electricity and gas at work and home making them one of the top energy companies in the UK.

Wessex Energy Centre is one of E.ON’s substations, as part of works to the existing building and a new proposed substation it was recommended following a flood risk assessment that mitigation measures should be installed to specified apertures. 

Based close to the River Avon, the site is currently protected from fluvial flooding, however, the need for further flood protection has now been identified in the event of a breach of the current defences.

THE SOLUTION

Partnering with JM Scully, UK Flood Barriers were appointed the contract to install flood mitigation measures to seven entrances to the substations. Following a survey conducted by UKFB, Flood Angel® Flood Defender™ Barriers and Flood Angel® Steel Security and Flood Doors were installed to the stations.

The Flood Angel® Steel Security and Flood Door was specified due to the site being located in an unmanned area requiring passive protection when a flood alert has been issued. Holding two BSI Kitemark licenses, the door also offers number of versatile benefits, its galvanised steel and high grade seals protects against fire, floods and unauthorised entry.

A total of three Steel Security and Flood Doors were installed including; one single, one double and a bespoke size measuring at 3600mm x 2700mm. Four bespoke Flood Defender™ Barriers were installed around the remaining entrances including one permanently in situ, only to be removed to allow plant removal from the station.
