Cresta Pumpstation project
Pump & Valve Specialties Ltd
The North Shore City Council needed to upgrade the emergency storage at an old pumpstation on Cresta Rd in Beach Haven. The pumpstation was an odd-shaped concrete chamber with a single Flygt pump with associated pipework, and was situated on the side of a bank above a creek.
We at Pump & Valve worked in with the Consultant and Council for a number of years through the design and planning process.
The project was a complete turn-key project including all excavation, installation, electrical connections, reinstatement, concrete work and commissioning. This entrie project was project managed by our inhouse team.
As we were dealing with 'live sewer' (the line was unable to be shut down) and that we were on the side of a bank which ran down into stream, we had to manage the installation in order that no sewer overflows occured.
This project was a success; the pumpstation was commissioned and handed over within the timeframe allowed.
