Utility Asset Protection – Water Treatment Plant
by: Australian Bollards on
Damage caused to valuable assets on a site can not only be an expensive exercise but can also be a potential safety hazard. Protection of such assets is an important part of site inspections, therefore is a necessity.
Assets such as gas meters and water pipes must be protected at all times and must be protected from accidental collisions, particularly when there are heavy vehicles that frequent the area. Bollards can be an effective and efficient way to protect significant assets from potential damage.
The Western Water Treatment Plant in Werribee required the installation of bollards to safeguard water pipes. The site contained pipeline pumping water out of recycle tanks, 5 bores putting water into, then pumping water back up and sending into treatment plant. Concrete slabs surrounding the stainless pipework around the site required our bollards for protection.
Australian Bollards’ AB-GP100-Y high impact energy absorbing bollards are surface mounted on round base plates and are constructed from zinc coated mild steel and powder coated for increased protection. Our Australian designed and manufactured bollards give 360 degree protection to stop vehicles, even those travelling at high speeds. We can customise any bollard solution to suit your individual site requirements.
