New Flood Protection Measures For Chemical Plant

New Flood Protection Measures for Chemical Plant

In October 2011 IBS Engineered Products Ltd were awarded a contract to supply and install
flood defences for a multi-billion turnover US-based chemical manufacturer with facilities
here in the UK. Being in a flood risk area, the company’s chemical site in West Yorkshire
had previously suffered damage as a result of flooding on the River Colne and new defences
were needed to help safeguard the premises and its equipment to minimise the risk of future

Our solution reflects specialist expertise and a manufacturing capability that enables us to
create high-performance products designed around a very specific brief. In response to
consultations with the client, we produced bespoke sized flood barriers and installed them on
numerous doorways and openings at their manufacturing and storage facility. As well as
delivering total protection from flood waters, our solution also proved totally cost-effective
and satisfied this key requirement of the client’s original brief.

Ray Moulds, Business Development Manager at IBS commented “one of the key benefits of
our design is that the lightweight aluminium construction means that the flood barriers can
be deployed quickly and easily at a moment’s notice – a crucial factor in protection against
unexpected or flash flooding. Now, another satisfied client enjoys the peace of mind that
comes from knowing its premises, equipment and stock are fully protected against the risk of
flooding by IBS demountable flood barriers”. Best of all, the design and aesthetics of the
flood protection barriers perfectly suit the location and the project was completed on time
and without compromising commercial performance.
