EE Case Study Two

MCC & Sewage Pumping Station Replacement

Central Belt, Scotland

WGM Engineering was awarded the contract to replace 35no. Sewage pumping stations and associated Motor Control Centres (MCC) at various locations across Scotland for Scottish Water. The agreed scope of work was to survey, design, supply, manufacture, install and commission replacement equipment including pumps, motors, support framework, guide rails, civil engineering works, associated MCC’s, earthing system, valves, cabling, and telemetry integration.

Electrical & Commissioning

  • Supply of a Modular Assembled Fabricated Kiosk with a MCC Panel fitted out with Pulsar Ultra level and flow control instrumentation complete with telemetry RTU and surge protection.

  • Installation & Commissioning of new power supplies and control cabling complete with installation of wet well instrumentation cabling including glanding and termination, testing,  issue of NICEIC test certification and full earthing system installation.

Multi-Site Telemetry Interface

New telemetry systems were installed at each of the pumping stations. Data gathered at each site included automated level & flow meter readings and equipment surveillance. Data is available in real time allowing reduced site mobilisation response times to critical events in the field. The Telemetry control allows for the intervention with each asset such as pumps and allows to remotely switch pumps on or off depending on the circumstances, from the Scottish Water Central Control Centre located in the Stepps Office in North Lanarkshire.
