    Cheddar Reservoir Pumping Station, Somerset, UK

    GRP Access Structure

    Project Overview

    Cheddar Reservoir, managed by Bristol Water, is a man-made body of water established in the 1930s. With a storage capacity of 135 million gallons, it receives its water supply from the Cheddar Yeo river flowing through Cheddar Gorge.

    Water treatment works access structure supplied and installed.

    In this project for Bristol Water, Dura Composites designed, fabricated, supplied and installed a large GRP access structure to provide a means for personnel to reach and maintain the pumping equipment, including pumps, motors, valves, and associated machinery.

    GRP is highly resistant to corrosion from water, chemicals, and environmental factors. This makes it ideal for use in water treatment environments where traditional materials like steel or concrete may corrode over time. Despite its lightweight nature, GRP is incredibly strong and durable, and can be easily fabricated into safe structures which allow for regular inspections and servicing of the equipment necessary to ensure the proper functioning of the pumping station.

    For this water treatment project, the client chose to utilise our highly qualified and experienced Installation Team to fit the structure, speeding up project delivery and saving labour costs.
