The Dura Pump team were approached by a renowned development company to provide not one but five pump stations for a large mixed-use high rise tower, which sits in a prime location in the City of London.
The challenge was to come up with a solution that would work best for this large scale project, and in this case, the best option was to provide five bespoke GRP packaged pump stations. Our division for special projects is experienced in the design and manufacture of bespoke pump systems, so we were ready to create a solution that was unique to the development and was going to leave them with an efficient and reliable system long into the future.
The five twin pump stations supplied will serve the facilities as well as the stormwater runoff, as they are situated well below ground level and run off the existing sewer levels in the basement. Rotomec pumps were recommended for this project, with high heads ranging from 17m to 20m.
These bespoke pump stations were delivered to the site pre-assembled, ready for installation to be carried out by the developer. They were installed into the concrete basement floor with pre-assembled pipework all ready to go within the GRP tanks and also required inlets and outlets to complete the solution.
All of the pump stations are individually controlled with dual control panels, a 4 float system, high-level alarms and no bolt BMS contacts.
For such a large development, there are a number of steps we go through in order to fulfil the pump requirements and to provide the support needed. Here are Dura Pump’s 7 steps to project completion:
