Pump stations 3 and 4 are almost ready

11th August 2016 | Mike Allen

With only 3 weeks to the final milestone, things are happening quickly as we race to meet the commissioning deadline. The walls went up on Pump Station 3 and 4 today, and whilst McMahon's were doing that, they swung in the 1.6 tonne pumps for Pump Technology Services. There are 10 contracts to coordinate before we can confirm the design flows are achieved when we push water 200m uphill through 28km of pipes to Hill Dam. Coordinating power authorities and retailers is very difficult, but the other contractors involved are working around them. Dematec are doing a fantastic job by preassembling and testing the electrical controls so they can minimise the time required for finishing off on site.
