Quick and competitive solution delivered to prevent storm damage.

Stormwater worries.

PROJECT SUMMARY

Dutypoint were contacted by the main contractor to assist in a pre-packaged pump station to collect stormwater from the new drainage scheme in a 1:100 year storm. Stormwater in a freak storm would rise over a weir in the drainage system and divert through the pump station.

PROJECT CHALLENGE

The pump station was not initially within the scope of this project so the client was looking to install something as quickly and competitively as possible. They contacted us to assist in designing a pre-packaged system to keep their costs and program low. When the drainage system was completed, it became apparent that this was not going to be within the capabilities of a packaged system.

With flow rates of 900 litres/second, 300mm pipework, a 5m diameter by 11m deep chamber, this was unfortunately too extensive for a pre-packaged system.

PROJECT SOLUTION

Working in partnership with hydraulic engineers and the client, Dutypoint appointed a team of mechanical and electrical installation engineers to carry out the installation of pipework, pumps, controls and panel into the concrete shaft.
