To improve the water quality, the customer decided to modernize the rapid filter and control system. The biggest challenge was that because the pumping station is a historic building, the construction could not be changed.
We replaced the complicated sewage pump installation with modern Sulzer technology. These kind of demanding projects challenge us to develop our knowledge., project manager, Sulzer Wastewater Poland
To replace the existing flushing pumps, Sulzer delivered three submersible sewage pumps type ABS XFP 501U-SK3 PE1600/6 in vertical mounting with variable speed drives (VSD). The pumps were installed during the second half of 2014.
The treatment plant was upgraded with very modern pumps with remarkably smaller power consumption than the previously installed pumps. Thanks to the Sulzer technology, the customer’s energy savings are close to 50% in comparison to the previous installation. The pump motors have a large power reserve and a very good efficiency.
