Specialist Protection Projects
Flood Defence Pumping Stations

MBDA Henlow, Bedfordshire
No chances have been taken at this sensitive site

With the safety of personnel at the top of the agenda, the protection methods chosen have been a combination of isolated system types including catenary protection using tall masts with suspended conductors over the buildings.
