In 2013, Brunton Engineering & Construction was engaged by GMW from February to May for the supply of movable cofferdam to enable repair works on Mildura Weir.

During this project, the company:

  • Produced a 3D model and a full set of fabrication drawings based on GHD’s preliminary engineering designs
  • Fabricated over 16 tonnes of structural steel using a variety of certified welding procedures
  • Fitted two sluice valves, ten large steel castors, four sets of truck landing gears and two submersible hydraulic jacks, allowing the cofferdam to run across the existing
    ridge in the river floor
  • Custom-designed and manufactured a davit crane and hoist to allow equipment to be safely lowered into the work area
  • Tailored a serious of rubber seals and flaps to seal the cofferdam to the river floor and restrict the surrounding river from accessing the work area
  • Successfully transported the cofferdam across a lock to the dam runway using a variety of truck and crane configurations, completing installation ahead of schedule in under five days.
