Limpet Dam

Limpet Dam

Working closely with BAM Nuttall, Plandescil has designed numerous limpet dams, which have been deployed all over the world including Liverpoool Docks, Great Yarmouth, Qatar and Singapore to suit a variety of engineering and construction problems.

A limpet dam is a large steel structure which is positioned on the side of a quay wall or dock below the water line. By removing water from within the limpet, the external water pressure against the structure creates a water-tight seal that allows essential repairs to be undertaken in a safe, dry environment.
