Pumping Station

Pumping Station Installations

We carry out the expert installation of all types of submersible, sump, sewage, foul and surface water pumping stations. Our fully qualified engineers have many years’ experience and a broad knowledge of pump and ancillary equipment, including control systems, variable speed drives (VSDs), instrumentation sensors and telemetry systems. All installation works are fully certified and tested.

Often working at operational sites where continuous service is a requirement, our engineers are highly skilled in end-of-asset-life refurbishments and over-pumping techniques that ensure the highest possible SHE (safety, health and environment) standards, whilst maintaining any client discharge and pass forward consents.

Our approach to pumping station projects comes from the recognition that every station is different, not only in physical parameters but also in its operating requirements for flows, storage, type of medium and its position within a network. Using this as a starting point we are able to design, install and commission electrical and ICA works that optimise energy and, in many cases, resolve historical problems.

  • Design and installation of MCC, PLC, SCADA, telemetry and software systems

Pumping Stations Turnkey Services

Retroflo specialise in the design, installation, commissioning and upkeep of new build pumping stations, along with the refurbishment and maintenance of existing assets. We undertake projects that range in size and complexity, where a normal gravity system cannot be used to transfer foul and surface water to the sewer system. Stations are built to provide an intermediate storage chamber that collects flows and periodically pumps the contents up a rising main to the discharge point. The image below shows installations over the past 12 months (Dec 2017).
