I want to share some good news from this project. We have made very good progress since the last update. We have recorded several successful shutdowns and started the installation of the new pumps. The electrical works are substantially complete and the mechanical works are progressing very well.
The project is nearing completion and we are targeting early December to complete all of the works at the pumping station. We have agreed a programme of five shutdowns with Northumbrian Water. This will allow us to make the remaining electrical and mechanical connections.
This photograph shows the location of the pumping station. This site is located next to a very popular walkway along the Cullercoats coastline We have made every effort to ensure local residents and pedestrians have not been impeded in any way. Well done to the site team.
This is the site compound where we have set up our site offices and welfare units. We will be removing the compound in a month's time.
The site team successfully completed all of the scheduled works in the two shutdowns this week. We are concentrating on the installation of the remaining mechanicla works. The testing and commissioning works are progressing as sections of the pumping station are completed. We are on track to finish all the works and handover the assets to Northumbrain Water.
