Kaymac have recently been involved in the £50m Flood Resilience Project with the Environment Agency and the Port of Tilbury. The Scheme consisted of replacing the 100-year-old dock gates to reduce flood risk in a £50M “project of national importance”, installing new dual-function lock gates on the Thames Estuary in Tilbury Docks – a development that will better protect thousands of homes and businesses in the local area from flooding.
The project required significant collaboration between Kaymac and TEAM2100 to ensure that the works were completed on time and to the highest standard. Kaymac’s engineers, divers, and operatives worked tirelessly to ensure the successful replacement of the gate pintles and the installation of the shotbolt cans. Their attention to detail and precision engineering ensured that the pintles and shotbolt cans were installed to millimetre accuracy and in the safest manner. The successful completion of the project has enhanced the flood defences at Tilbury Docks, enabling the docks to better withstand the impacts of climate change.
All work was carried out successfully and resulted in Kaymac being winning the Quality Award from TEAM2100.
