As part of the wider Thames Tideway scheme, Barhale were engaged
to design and build a new 60m long, 2.8m diameter, steel pipeline
within the Beckton Waste Water Treatment Works (WWTW). The new
pipeline will connect the existing Lee Tunnel to a new Storm Tunnel,
and substantially increase storage capacity during flooding, thus
reducing the amount of sewage being released into the Thames River
yearly. Barhale designed, fabricated and installed most of the elements,
including all the steel work. We provided technical and engineering
support to integrate our works into the client BIM system. We also
delivered several specialist design, fabrication and lifting solutions to
overcome numerous restrictions. Now complete, the works are part of
the permanent Thames Tideway solution.
