Installation Procedures For Water Filled Cofferdams

The installation procedure for your water filled cofferdam depends upon the type of installation that you require. Generally, there are three potential types of installation for a water filled cofferdam as follows:

  • Dry surface where no water is present
  • Static water environment where water is present but is not flowing
  • Dynamic water environment where water is present and is flowing

Below you will find a brief overview of each particular installation procedure for a water filled cofferdam. If you require a more detailed explanation or any type of help with an installation procedure, then please contact us at Dam-It-Dams.

Dry Surface Installation Procedure For A Water Filled Cofferdam

A dry surface installation is the simplest type of installation procedure for a water filled cofferdam. The cofferdam is simply transported to where it needs to be, placed in position and then water is pumped into the cofferdam in order to inflate it. The most common scenario for such a dry surface installation is for flooding prevention.

Static Water Installation Procedure For A Water Filled Cofferdam

Water filled cofferdams are buoyant and can simply be floated into position within static water. They are transported to the required site and unrolled at the water’s edge. They are then floated out into the static water environment until they are positioned where they need to be. Inflation takes place and the added weight of the water lowers the cofferdam and anchors it into position.

Dynamic Water Installation Procedure For A Water Filled Cofferdam

Dynamic water installation is the most complicated procedure. Typically, one end of the water inflated cofferdam is anchored to the shore, and the other is fixed in placed by use of suitable equipment, such as a crane or a track hoe. Once in position, the dynamic water can be used to inflate the cofferdam. As it gains weight it will lower into place until it is anchored. At which point the attachments can be removed.
