As part of the Saltburn Bathing Waters scheme, it was required that the pumps at Tocketts Bridge work as duty / assist rather than the existing duty / standby arrangement, to handle the additional flows from Guisborough Works. In order to do this, the existing Motor Control Centre (MCC) was upgraded from 400A to 630A.

The works consisted of replacing the CSO (Combined Storm Overflow). The work was required due to the existing CSO being located directly in the path of the new bridge being built and developed across the River Wear. After constructing the new CSO Chamber in its new location, Retroflo installed new screens, the Motor Control Center (MCC) and Kiosk, new instrumentation and telemetry, and relocated the BT Line.

Charlotte Street Sewage Pumping Station in Kirkcaldy was a problem site causing reputational issues for Scottish water. Continual pump blockages, flooding of local businesses, pollution of the seafront and odours led to complaints from business owners, residents and MSPs. Since the installation of Retroflo’s RPC_2000 Pump Control System in June 2009 the problem of blockages, flooding and odours has been resolved without need for a single reactive maintenance call-out. The station is also on target to achieve an annual OPEX saving of £30,000, equating to a CAPEX payback inside the first year.
