What A Whopper!

Posted: Thursday 4th June 2009

Broadway Systems has delivered the largest GRP pre-packaged vertical pumping station ever to be built in the UK.

The colossal 6 metre deep, 4 metre diameter pumping station was needed by Alstom for a new Power Station construction project in Aghada, near Cork, Ireland, and Broadway Systems had the specialist expertise and knowledge to design, manufacture, install and commission this unique system.

As one of the UK’s leading suppliers of pumped solutions for water and fluid waste, including its Vortech™ specialised drainage and water management systems, Broadway provided the complete package including controls, pumps and integral pipework, plus arranged all the transport from its manufacturing site in England, across the Irish Sea and onwards to the power plant in Aghada.

Delivered complete with a separate valve chamber, fully fitted out with stainless steel pipework, guide rails and valves, the system will pump surface water at a flow rate of 140 litres/second to an outfall.

“It’s a Grand Job” said the site manager and others as they watched the “whopper” being lowered into the excavation.
