Seabrook Lift & Sector Gates

United States Army Corps of Engineers
New Orleans, LA

In the 12 years since Hurricane Katrina, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has nearly completed one of the world's most remarkable hurricane protection systems to encircle New Orleans. The Seabrook Floodgate Structure is a flood barrier which is designed to protect the surrounding areas from a storm surge from Lake Ponchartrain. It consists of two 50 ft wide vertical lift gates and a 95 ft wide sector gate.

Atlantic Hydraulic Systems designed, manufactured and commissioned the flood gate hydraulics and control systems at Seabrook Gates. Atlantic on-site technicians directed the installation of the HPU, hydraulic cylinders, hydraulic plumbing and both high voltage and control wiring.

The gates are controlled using a user-friendly graphic interface and provides closed loop position control of the gates and safety interlocks with the gates locking mechanisms.
