Bringing Function to Weirs and Fishlocks

Queensland Hydraulics’ record and success in completed works on Weirs and Fishlocks remains unsurpassed. Queensland Hydraulics has completed the works on all Queensland (mainly Sunwater) Weirs and Fishlocks since the 1990’s. On three occasions the project was initially awarded to other contractors, however due to their failings, Queensland Hydraulics were called in to rebuild the Hydraulic/electrical system.

Our success with Weir and Fishlock projects can be attributed to:

  1. Providing an integrated hydraulic solution that includes design, manufacture, installation, commissioning, and maintenance
  2. Innovative actuator and hydraulic cylinder design
  3. Guaranteeing a leak proof site installation
