Project Overview

Pensar’s Utilities, Industrial division was selected by SunWater to deliver the Hydraulic Cylinder Rod replacement at Scrivener Dam.

An inspection of sluice gate number 3 at Scrivener Dam and its associated actuator that was undertaken in June 2014, along with a follow up inspection of the hydraulic cylinder rod which was undertaken in July 2014 resulted in the identification of corroded areas on the surface of the hydraulic cylinder rod for sluice gate 3.

Pensar were engaged to remove the existing hydraulic cylinder from site and manufacture, install and commission a new hydraulic cylinder rod for sluice gate 3.
