In 2005 Whelans constructed the electrical / mechanical works for the Sunshine Coast’s third Boat Navigation Lock at Pelican Waters.
Whelans have previously performed similar works at the two other Locks at Noosa Waters and Kawana Waters.
The Locks consist of a set at gates at either end which holds back tidal and static water.
The gates are operated by electric actuators to allow passage of boats from the canal system to the lake and vise versa.
The boat operators use a proximity card to trigger the full automated system.
