Lee River Diverted At Waimea Dam

Damwatch is pleased to support Waimea Water with construction supervision and design services for Waimea Dam.
A milestone was reached in early September when the Lee River was diverted through the Diversion Culvert to allow the remaining permanent works to be completed.
The Diversion Culvert consists of 1,000 tonne of reinforcment and 4,500 cubic metres of concrete.

Construction of Waimea Dam Begins

Construction of the Waimea Dam is currently underway in Tasman District, New Zealand. Damwatch is pleased to support Waimea Water with construction supervision and design services for this exciting project.
Once completed, this 53m high, 220m long concrete-faced rock fill dam will contain approximately 13 billion litres of water which will provide a secure water supply for future and current users.

Seismic Design Seminar for Concrete Dams

Peter Amos was an invited speaker at the CEATI Workshop on the Seismic Performance of Concrete Dams held in Tacoma, Washington, USA. The Dam Safety Interest Group of CEATI International (the Centre for Engineering Advancement through Technological Innovation) is a multi-national group of dam safety managers and experts from more than 50 hydropower utilities who collaborate to develop capability and resources for dam safety management. This event for hydropower dam owners involved experts from Canada, USA and New Zealand presenting industry-leading case studies on seismic analysis and design of concrete gravity, arch and buttress dams. Peter provided the audience with insights from New Zealand's experience of major earthquakes and the lessons provided for dam seismic performance analysis. Speakers were all highly respected practitioners in this field and well versed in the challenges of analysing dams in highly seismic environments.

Vietnam-New Zealand Dam Safety Project

Damwatch Engineering and partners GNS Science hosted a senior delegation of Vietnamese Government officials, here to compare flood management procedures and governance. These senior officials are responsible for dam safety and flood management for water resources and hydropower assets in Vietnam, a country subject to multiple typhoons every year that displace thousands of people and sometimes have fatal consequences. Their visit was part of the NZ Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade funded Vietnam-New Zealand Dam Safety Project being carried out by dam safety experts from Damwatch Engineering and GNS Science to strengthen practice and build capacity in Vietnam. Thanks to Mercury and Trustpower for hosting the delegation at their power stations.
