Burghfield substation in Berkshire & the Mythe water treatment plant near Tewkesbury have both been threatened by the recent floods. The Burghfield substation supplies power for approximately 40,000 homes and businesses and the water treatment plant supplies the Gloucestershire County. Both sites have previously fallen victims to the floodwaters and have since invested heavily in their flood defences.
CSD works very closely with the operators to ensure their assets are fully protected and buildings watertight. The RISE Duct sealing system is widely adopted throughout the utility sector and the system was installed across both sites ensuring high levels of water integrity for cable ducts or where services enter the buildings.
RISE Duct seal will offer the highest levels of watertight and gastight integrity and is proven to provide in excess of 50 years long term protection. The system also ensures compliance with WIMES and DSEAR regulations.
