Hythe Marina Lock Gate Shutdown

The BRIEF

MDL Hythe Marina is busy all year round with vessels entering and leaving through its lock. Managers employ RS Divers annually to check and review the lock system, then repair any problems detected underwater.

WORK UNDERTAKEN

Working underwater near powerful lock gates always requires comprehensive health and safety preparations. After fulfilling all these requirements, RS Divers set to work. Our experienced and professional divers found the stop log flood gates required cleaning and some needed replacing. The team also examined the entire system to prevent leaks and replaced the anodes on the lock gates.

THE RESULT

We finished our tasks on time and on budget helping marina staff complete all their annual work in good time for the busy summer season.

“We were delighted to be asked back for a fifth consecutive year to work alongside the staff of MDL marine on their lock maintenance programme.” Julian Cheeseman – Lead Diver.
