Wedge Group Galvanizingcontact supplier
East Anglian Galvanizing, part of Wedge Group Galvanizing, is helping to create a £4m ride at the Center Parcs holiday resort in Elveden Forest.
Working with Wall Engineering, the company galvanized more than 50 tonnes of steelwork for the 200m long, 18m high Tropical Cyclone ride, due for completion in November.
Galvanizing the ride’s structure will enable it to withstand water rapids of 25,000 litres per minute and carry rafts travelling at speeds of up to 24 miles per hour.
Karl Rumsby, of Wall Engineering, added: “We’ve worked with East Anglian Galvanizing on a number of recent projects, and as always, they’ve provided us with a quick turnaround and an extremely high level of professionalism.”
