Red7 Undertakes Surface Welding at Great Yarmouth

As part of the £40.3million investment in Great Yarmouth’s flood defences and river walls Red7 has been contracted to undertake surface welding works to install anodes and steel plating.

Red7 provided a self sufficient spud leg NATO float pontoon system complete with knuckle boom crane, welding plant and personnel to complete the fabrication and installation of  over 700 anodes along the steel sheet pile walls of the Rivers Bure and Yare.  

The works are part of a larger scheme being undertaken by JN Bentley and JBA for the Environment Agency to extend the life of the existing river walls and raise the existing flood defence walls in Great Yarmouth with some 12km of walls requiring upgrade or maintenance.
