Weed Rack Fabrication

Kingcombe Aquacare Ltd were engaged to fabricate and install a weed rack as part of the Environment Agency’s Water Level Management Plan at Bodenham, near Salisbury. The rack was made to EA specifications in our workshop at Crewkerne. The process included full assembly in our yard (pictured above) to check for accuracy. The structure was then sent away to be galvanised to the required standard. It was delivered to site in kit form and installed into the river.

The installation presented challenges in terms of access and the construction of suitable foundation slabs. This involved the deployment of specialist coffer dams and the temporary diversion of the carrier stream.

Kingcombe Aquacare Ltd are able to offer a comprehensive fabrication service for a wide range of applications. We can work directly from the client’s specifications but we are also happy to be involved from concept level and, if necessary, we can undertake design works using our CAD system and retained engineering consultancy.

Fabrication works are carried out by our skilled workshop team. We can also deliver, install and, if necessary, commission any fabrications we produce.
