Temporary Security Fencing

Lake Tekapo Hydro Power
December 2019


The 190MW Tekapo hydro power scheme in New Zealand’s South Island consists of two power stations in neighbouring lakes. The Tekapo Intake Gate Project will see a new intake gate constructed adjacent to the southern shoreline of Lake Tekapo. It will provide the ability to stop flow through the intake under full load conditions in an emergency. A significant length of footpath needed to be closed during this project and Jaybro was able to supply security fencing to the contractor.


Initial site works began in early 2019 and continued throughout the year. Site works included demolition of the existing pump house and installation of a retaining wall behind where the new Intake Gate building is to be located.

The project managers needed a simple and cost effective he security fencing solution to surround the site, particularly as an existing walk and cycle pathway passes through the project area. This pathway would be closed during construction with a temporary footpath established along the opposite side of the road for approximately 500 metres.


The Fortress Fencing team were able to supply a quantity of security fencing to cordon off the site works area and close the existing footpath/cycleway.

Jaybro’s temporary security fencing is strong, lightweight and modular with a range of sturdy concrete fence bases and joining couplers available to suit. It can easily be erected by one person and ensures work sites like this one at Lake Tekapo can be made safe and secure, fast.

Jaybro and Fortress Fencing have large warehouses in both Auckland and Christchurch ensuring fast delivery across both the North and South. Our Fortress Fencing brand is known for affordability and quality, meaning our customers can rest assured their site is safe and secure – without breaking the bank.
