CW Engineering: riding the storm.

Double dip recession, budget cuts, drought… and we are only in May! But according to King’s Lynn based C W Engineering, the above have had minimal effect on business.

“With our range of services from design engineering to plant refurbishment operations, we can offer drainage boards and civil engineers a more cost effective answer to the ever present demands of flood prevention. Even in drought conditions, flash floods can happen!” says Managing Director Tony Jolley.

Moreover the weak pound has made British manufactured weed screen cleaners more competitive at home and abroad. This was a factor in CW Engineering’s recently shipped export order to Iraq for a major irrigation project in Babil Governorate to re- establish water ways to optimise water usage, reduce losses and control water distribution, meeting the requirement for extensive agricultural irrigation. The company manufactured a 31.5 metre long weed screen cleaner to clean 5 individual debris screens. Each of the 5 screens was 3.6 metres wide with 2 sets of stop logs and stainless steel supporting frames for each bay.

Closer to home a diverse order book has kept the CW factory busy and their installation engineers occupied. Current projects include 3 new weed screeners for the Hull area, lock gate work, safety walkways and more orders for the company’s unique ‘dipping’ Snipe weed screen cleaner.

New screen cleaner

installations include several 90 degree L shaped system delivering debris to a

convenient collection point with easy lorry access (see photo).

Weed screen refurbishment work continues to expand as more IDBs recognise the major savings that can be made

when faced with failing equipment, specifically ageing screen cleaners and lock gates.

“Our ongoing success has also proved that the investment in hours and money we committed to achieving ISO 14001 (Environmental) and OHSAS 18001 (Health & Safety) were worthwhile” says Tony Jolley. “At a time when the market has become very competitive, it is important to have recognised proof of the high standards you offer”.

The ‘Love Your River’ campaign is being launched and backed by Defra, the National Trust, the Environment Agency, the Wildlife Trusts, Keep Britain Tidy, water companies and Waterwise, to promote the value and benefits of our rivers to our everyday life. The need to protect our rivers has become more urgent in light of droughts being declared in various parts of the country, with some of southern Yorkshire joining the list of drought affected areas today.

The campaign will concentrate on the issues that affect rivers and encourage people to think about:

• how the water we use in our homes or businesses affects the water in our local river; • how the pollutants we dump down our drains harms our local water;

• the fact that there is likely to be less water available for people and businesses in the future and the knock-on effect this will have on the natural world around the river; and

• On average we use nearly 150 litres of water per person per day and it is easy to forget that our actions have a direct consequence on the health and wellbeing of our local rivers. That is why people are being asked to look at their own lifestyle to see if there are any changes they could make to help our rivers flourish.

The ‘Love Your River’ campaign is not just about educating people about the difficulties that many rivers face. It is also about celebrating the importance of rivers to local people – for their health, well-being, leisure and sport. It’s about recognising the great work that local groups already do to look after their rivers. It’s about honouring the community spirit and the inspirational individuals who give up their time and energy to improve their local environment.

Speaking from the River Itchen at the launch of the ‘Love Your River’ campaign, Rivers Minister Richard Benyon said:

“We all love our rivers. They are the lifeblood of our country. They’ve shaped our landscape, and our towns and cities have been designed around them. They are vitally important for our everyday lives and o m
