Very Light Railway Innovation Centre, Dudley - Foul Water Pumping Station


Advantage Pumping Solutions carried out the detailed design and installation for the mechanical and electrical works required for the foul water pumping station to serve this new project.  The design was carried out to provide the best solution for the site and we carried this out in conjunction with the drainage consultant on the scheme.  The system has been designed to pump the foul water from the complete development as a gravity connection was not possible.

Advantage Pumping Solutions installed the pumps, pipework and valves within a concrete ring pumping chamber installed on site using ductile iron pipework.  We then installed the control system, set it up, and commissioned the system for handover.
