Contract Value:
Graham Construction for NI Water
Project Overview:

Each station had 4 No. pumps operating Duty/Assist/Assist/Standby

The flow rates at each site were:

Portaferry Road:
4 No. pumps rated at 677 l/s each
Capacity of 3 No. combined: 2031 l/s

Comber Road:
4 No. pumps rated at 833 l/s
Capacity of 3 No. combined: 2449 l/s

Scope Of Work:


The scheme consisted of 2 No. Pumping Stations each comprising of 4 No. 70-90kw Bedford Axial Flow Pumps and cannisters, MCCs, PLC/SCADA, 500KVA containerised Standby Generators, 600mm diameter pipework and valves.
