Baffle Curtain Replacement, Pynes WTW, Exeter

“Thanks for doing such a good job”
Ashley Burson, Assistant Project Manager

Project: Replacement of 2no. Baffle Curtains using DWI approved membranes, 45.0Lm x 5.2m high and 24.0Lm x 5.2m high respectively.

Client: South West Water

Summary: The project involved the supply and installation of our pre-fabricated Landflex DWI Polypropylene baffle curtains into an existing Tank.

Challenges: Our team were required to work in a confined space, with extreme care due to recent spray coat refurbishment of reservoir roof, floors and walls in the work space. Paramount importance had to be placed on measures to avoid disturbing the refurbished areas during our attendance. The entire project was time critical; the reservoir needed to resume service as quickly as possible due to extremely hot weather conditions and the upcoming holiday season, both factors increasing demand in the areas served.

Our Solution: Material of choice was our Landflex DWI approved Polypropylene, pre-fabricated with 91 doubled hanging straps, and stainless steel wire reinforcement to every 3rd strap for failure protection. Works included additional reinstatement of P or I bolts with new UPVC pipework to run through the curtain hems. Curtains were fixed to vertical walls using PP battening and S/Steel anchor bolts by means of wrap-around sections of baffle curtain.
All task lighting and necessary level 2 Confined Space working and entry equipment was provided entirely by Butek Landline.

Contract Period: The project was successfully concluded within the specified urgent time frame of four days.
