Survey, supply, install and commission
A pump station was required for a 4 hectare construction site of a major industrial development. It would connect to the main sewer, which otherwise would require costly upgrading of infrastructure. The pump station would need to comply with the water authority’s restriction on flow rates.
Installation would be into a large 1800mm deep by 4500mm concrete ring chamber via a small 600mm by 600mm access cover.
Work would need to be carried out on the site without the benefit of permanent power or water supply.
Computer modelling was used to calculate friction loss over the pumped distance, taking into account pumping route. From this analysis the correct pump was specified to comply with the water authority restrictions.
Our engineers installed, commissioned and wet tested the pump station before providing a full handover service to the main contractor.
