SunWater’s ability to deliver infrastructure that is cost effective, reliable and safety optimised is backed by dependable testing and design techniques and a commitment to future research.
With highly skilled staff and a dedicated laboratory built specifically for testing hydraulic structures we can give customers detailed and individual predictions before the construction phase commences.
Our use of in-house physical modelling means that we not only offer cost efficiencies for the end-customer, but infrastructure with greater hydraulic efficiency, improved safety and reliability and lower construction costs.
Completed work to date includes studies and/or designs of:
- Spillway design and performance
- Spillway energy dissipaters
- Intake and outlet works
- Tidal barrages and weirs
- Pump station intakes
