Major overseas contract for CW Engineering


Recent conflicts in Libya and Iraq have highlighted the destruction suffered by water ways within mod- ern war zones and our government ministers have appealed to British companies to gain a share in the rebuilding projects. One of those to have benefitted already is weed screen cleaner specialists CW En- gineering of King’s Lynn.


They are working with the Iraqi Ministry of Water Resources on a major irrigation project in Babil Gov- ernorate. The current project will re-establish water ways to optimise water usage, reduce losses and control water distribution, meeting the requirement for extensive agricultural irrigation. This includes re- furbishment of the Al-Mahaweel Head pumping sta- tion maintaining water levels to ensure gravity irrigation for lands located within the borders of Al- Mahaweel Stream.


CW Engineering has been responsible for manu- facturing a 31.5 metre long weedscreen cleaner to clean 5 individual debris screens. Each of the 5 screens is 3.6 metres wide with 2 sets of stop logs and stainless steel supporting frames for each bay. “Our drawings and technical details had to be sup- plied to the Iraqi authorities before we were able to build anything and they all came back unchal- lenged” explains Dickie Dye.


“Installation drawings, written installation proce- dures with photographic illustrations and operating and maintenance manuals have all been translated into Arabic to assist with the installation and opera- tion of the machine in Iraq. “Subsequently, our standard electrical and me- chanical trials have been carried out at our UK fac- tory and all documentation has been forwarded to Iraq. This project is now ready for shipping to Iraq. “In the Spring we were pleased to receive Mo-


hammed AL Yousif, our customer from Iraq, who vis- ited our factory in King’s Lynn and a number of our weedscreen cleaner installations of which he was most complimentary.


“Iraqi project consultants went worldwide looking for suitable suppliers of equipment so it is quite an achievement for a small company such as CW En- gineering to be part of a prestigious project like this. “All in all, this has been an interesting project and has proved once again the depth of our in-house skills and the teamwork that has guaranteed an- other happy client.”
