The plant turns over in excess of £120 Million per year.
Reason for requirement
The river Calder runs directly through the Weir Minerals plant in Todmorden and in 2012 this river burst its banks and flooded the plant. The plant was shut down for only 48hrs but cost them more than £250,000.
To help protect Weir Minerals from future flood events, Floodsense was asked to visit the site and propose a list of measures to help protect those areas that were affected. Weir Minerals proceeded to take our advice and instructed us to install over 50 demountable flood defence systems around the site as well as installing our Hydro-cladding around a couple of vulnerable cladded buildings.
