We have designed over 300 pumping stations

We provide detailed engineering services for the planning and design of water, well water, wastewater and drainage pumping stations typically for municipal or industrial clients.

Our team specializes in this niche market and integrates electrical, mechanical and SCADA into the design process.

We have designed over 120 water booster pump stations, typically ranging from two pumps with flows of 10 L/s to four pump stations with flows of 600 L/s. Pump horsepower and style are selected based on individual system parameters, for example open or closed systems.

Similarly we have designed over 40 well pumping stations ranging from 10 to 100 horsepower multi-well installations. Typically, the pump stations include water treatment or disinfection as a component of the overall building design.

On the wastewater and drainage side, we have designed over 130 pumping stations, individually designed for the client's needs and requirements. Often these pumping stations are combined with an electrical substation design or standby generator to meet "post disaster" requirements.
