Bedford Pumps Reaffirms Resilience for Birmingham

Posted: Tuesday 24th July 2018

Bedford Pumps Ltd, the UK based pump manufacturer producing bespoke high capacity water and waste water pumps, has just won the third and final order to supply pumps for the renowned Birmingham Resilience project.

Birmingham Resilience is a £300M scheme designed to make Birmingham's water supply more resilient by providing a new back-up water supply for Birmingham and surrounding areas, keeping water flowing for over a million customers.

As part of the project a new water intake and pumping station will be built at Lickhill near Stourport. This pumping station will deliver water to Frankley in Birmingham via a new 25km water pipeline. This back up supply will ensure the vital water source for the city whilst enabling the Elan Valley Aqueduct, which has delivered Birmingham's water supply from Wales for decades, the crucial time it needs for service and repairs.

The contract totals £1.2M across the three schemes with Bedford Pumps supplying fifteen pumps in total. The project comprises of the supply of six (6) off vertical suspended mixed flow bowl pumps for the New and Existing RGF Filters, five (5) off canister mixed flow bowl pumps for the Emergency Return Pumps and four (4) off horizontal dry well inline mixed flow bowl pumps for the Raw Water Pumps.

Bedford Pumps has a proven track record for producing high quality, high efficiency, robust and reliable long life pumpsets, ideally suited for critical applications. This reputation along with excellent customer and technical support for the contractor helped us to secure this highly prestigious contract.
