Relying on its expertise as an established solutions provider, the Boulting Group installed a High Voltage Switchboard that enables the pump station to use PV power when available and supplement it with grid power when necessary.
To preserve the personality and historical character of the space, the Boulting Group suggested changing the layout of the system.
Thames Water originally estimated the upgrade would take at least two years, but by working closely with the Boulting Group, the project is expected to take only half that time, including the design, delivery and installation of the new system.
The specific design Boulting created for this project allows an improvement to 87% pump efficiency and increased reliability during start up and operation.
To resolve the issue, the Boulting Group suggested the installation of a new and automated priming system that uses motive air vacuum ejectors and continuous water level monitoring.
