Hollandia Infra builts 3 steel segment Gates for the new Boston Barrier (UK)
Hollandia Infra has been awarded the contract for the design and delivery of 3 sector gates for the new Boston Barrier in the UK by joint venture Bam Nuttall-Mott MacDonald. This new flood barrier will protect more than 14,000 properties from flooding in the East coast port of Boston in Lincolnshire, during high water.
The scope of work includes primarily the design and delivery of one steel vertical moving radial sector gate, which will be 28 metres in width and weighing approximately 315 tons. This structure is similar in both appearance and operation to the steel gate recently delivered by Hollandia Infra for the new Ipswich Barrier.
Hollandia’s scope also includes the design and delivery of two vertical steel segment gates, each being 10 metres high and having a weight of 100 tons.
