Water Industry Case Studies

  • Pallion Combined Storm Overflow (CSO) +

    The works consisted of replacing the CSO (Combined Storm Overflow). The work was required due to the existing CSO being located directly in the path of the new bridge being built and developed across the River Wear. After constructing the new CSO Chamber in its new location, Retroflo installed new screens, the Motor Control Center (MCC) and Kiosk, new instrumentation and telemetry, and relocated the BT Line.

  • Moorhouses Pumping Station +

    The meter station houses the control and monitoring for the existing valves. The scope included replacing the building services and Distribution Board, a new control panel and telemetry outstation within the station building, while maintaining the existing control and telemetry. A new mains generator incomer was installed and the station earthing system upgraded to TT to comply with NWG regulations.

  • Teesside Pumping Station +

    The project entailed replacing 4 no. Pump Control Systems in the Teesside area that were beyond their service life and/or in an unsafe condition. The new panels were of a non-standard design that is not to NWG standard panel design for pumping stations and MCCs. The telemetry outstations at the majority of the pumping stations were to be replaced with new outstations incorporated into the design of the new control panel.

  • Tocketts Bridge Pumping Station +

    As part of the Saltburn Bathing Waters scheme, it was required that the pumps at Tocketts Bridge work as duty / assist rather than the existing duty / standby arrangement, to handle the additional flows from Guisborough Works. In order to do this, the existing Motor Control Centre (MCC) was upgraded from 400A to 630A.

  • Saltburn Bathing Waters +

    Works consisted of replacing the existing Motor Control Center (MCC), which was beyond its asset date and non-compliant, with a new, fully compliant MCC. Works also included installation of new actuated penstocks and new instrumentation to control the flow from a new 6000m³ storage tank at Guisborough work.

  • Charlotte Street Sewage Pumping Station +

    Charlotte Street Sewage Pumping Station in Kirkcaldy was a problem site causing reputational issues for Scottish water. Continual pump blockages, flooding of local businesses, pollution of the seafront and odours led to complaints from business owners, residents and MSPs. Since the installation of Retroflo’s RPC_2000 Pump Control System in June 2009 the problem of blockages, flooding and odours has been resolved without need for a single reactive maintenance call-out. The station is also on target to achieve an annual OPEX saving of £30,000, equating to a CAPEX payback inside the first year.

  • Skinningrove Transfer Pumping Station +

    Since implementing the Retroflo system in Skinningrove Transfer Pumping Station no operator / maintenance intervention has been required to remove blockages from the pumps. By initiating pump reversal cycles on detection of partial blockages and returning the pump to optimum operating conditions, this equates to a 12% decrease in power during normal operation. A vast improvement in the condition of the Wet Well is observed due to success of the Flushing Cycle. The Flushing Cycle serves to cleanse the Wet Well which reduces the threat of blockages to the pumps and reduces the need for routine cleansing.
