Floating Cover

In April 2020, Sean Carr Lining were approached, when an emergency repair was required to a Geomembrane floating cover in Lincolnshire.

The problem

The floating cover currently in place had been extensively damaged during a severe storm. It was no longer doing its job of preventing water ingress or contamination entering the food waste storage lagoon. For hygiene and safety purposes, the landowner required a team that could complete the emergency reinstatement and repairs in a timely, safe and cost-efficient operation. We would always advise that regular geomembrane lining maintenance and geomembrane lining repairs are carried out, to ensure that all liners and covers remain in optimum condition and resistant to atmospheric condition damage to reduce the chances of requiring emergency damage repairs. However, we also fully understand that emergencies happen, so you can be sure we will be there when needed. With floating covers being one of the many applications for our HDPE (High Density polyethylene) geomembranes, our client knew that we offered excellence in providing both materials and installation/repair services.

The project

The project involved a team of ten TWI/CSWIP certified technicians a little over 10 days at this Lincolnshire site carrying out geomembrane lining repairs to ensure that the cover was again in full working order. Floating covers are extremely important to maintain the integrity of the contents for all slurry lagoons, food storage waste lagoons and any geomembrane lined applications where smells, vapours and access is to be contained.

The damage to this floating cover installation which covered a vast 20,000m2 area, was extensive being caused by an exceptionally harsh storm and required a team on site to carry out the emergency reinstatement without delay. Our team are equally as experienced carry out geomembrane lining repairs as well as new floating cover installations.
