The DPS Technical team were approached by a primary site operator for Irish Water and asked if we could provide an assessment and solution for one of their large terminal pumping stations. This particular location in Co Louth, is a combined foul and storm facility and although the primary requirement was to upgrade the storm pump, there was also a wish to increase the forward feed volume on the foul system to 1400m3/h.
After initial consultation, the DPS Technical Manager visited the site to make a thorough assessment. The original KSB vertical turbine storm pump, that had been installed in the 1970’s, was now being required to pump through a significantly elongated system due to site modifications. It could no longer facilitate the actual duty required, nor handle the modern debris experienced in waste water handling.
