WORLD’S LARGEST COMPOSITE LOCK GATES

EARLIER THIS YEAR, HIGHLY INNOVATIVE COMPOSITE LOCK GATES WERE INSTALLED IN THE WILHELMINA CANAL IN TILBURG (THE NETHERLANDS) UNDER DIRECTION OF HEIJMANS. THESE HUGE LOCK GATES (6.2 X 12.9 M) WERE MANUFACTURED BY FIBERCORE EUROPE WITH RESINS FROM ALIANCYS. THE INSTALLATION WAS RELATIVELY EASY, BECAUSE OF THE LOW WEIGHT OF THE PARTS IN COMPARISON WITH STEEL AND WOOD. THE COMPOSITE SOLUTION WAS CHOSEN FOR ITS EXTENDED LIFETIME EXPECTANCY (OVER 80 YEARS), GREAT DURABILITY IN CONTINUED CONTACT WITH WATER, AND MINIMAL REQUIREMENT FOR MAINTENANCE.
