We were tasked with improving safety and asset performance on some of the trash screens that we manage in the Torbay area, as part of our framework contract.
We have currently installed two new bespoke trash screens, fabricated by our own EN10-90 accredited workshops and we’re in the process of fabricating a third. These changes will help improves safety of the operatives when cleaning and prevent debris blocking hard to reach culverts. It was good to see the trash screens we replaced before Christmas working well after the recent storms.
The new fabrications are to provide safe access over a floodwall and allow debris that has entered the culverts to be easily released by the operatives. The next tranche of trash screens are being made now and will be ready for installation in the next few weeks.
