One of our client’s most important pumping stations serves many square miles of domestic London. The station has six electrically driven pumps up to a capacity of 2 tonnes of water per second.
Following a major refurbishment, we used our FREEFLOW equipment to test the company’s 1930s diesel-driven units, which had an original duty flow rate of 5 tonnes of water per second. Our findings not only minimised risks and delivered a positive commercial impact, but our measurements now inform future design considerations.
