FOR THE CITY STATE OF SINGAPORE we are working on the design and implementation of the new wastewater system. We're part of an international project team. The new sewage tunnels will be constructed at a depth of 60 meters, below all existing civil engineering structures.

Our high-performance, transportable roller gate system is needed when maintenance work is carried out in the various tunnel sections. The roller gate system consist of gates, gate supports for storage and transport, and a specially developed mobile hoist with a lifting capacity of over 183 tons.

For the gates, extremely high-performance materials were used: 1.4404 stainless steel, 1.4501 Super Duplex steel and 1.4529 Super Austenite steel. Both in terms of corrosion and water pressure, the panels are extremely resilient: They are designed for a test pressure (water column) of 55,000 mm.
