Cockermouth has suffered severe flooding events in recent history. The Environment Agency were looking for the most efficient, cost effective and sustainable solution to provide protection for a ‘one-in-100-year event’.
The EA and local council commissioned a flood defence scheme, including a self-closing flood barrier, which incorporated Powelectrics lloT technology, to lessen the flood risk to 360 homes and 55 businesses.
As water levels rise, the flood barrier rises into position. This can block emergency exit routes from occupied buildings. Our solution measures water level and activates beacons and sirens, alerting occupants that the barrier is rising, in time to evacuate and avoid inundation.
