Patea Spillway Raising

This 3 month job in 2010 was to raise the Spillway on the Patea Dam. This was our first project for TrustPower and involved the raising of 110m of spillway by 1m to achieve a 1 in 10,000 year flood compliance. This small project delivered well, led to MAP Projects being chosen by TrustPower to build the Esk Hydro scheme. Over the past seven years TrustPower have showed their confidence in MAP by awarding a number of small and technically challenging Projects to us. The Patea Dam is a major PIC Dam constructed in the early 1970’s and MAP has completed three small major dam compliance upgrades and/or maintenance repairs
