Ovingham vertical turbine pump installation

This project is to replace two of the pumps in the raw water pumping station at Ovingham. These two new pumps will pump be able to pump up to 80 megalitres of water a day from the River Tyne to the water treatment works at Horsley. In order to vary the speed that the pumps will work at two new drives are being installed to control the speed of the pumps, together with new controls to monitor and control the pumps remotely.

Update by Joan Tatters

Good Afternoon,

Just thought I'd share some photos with you after my visit to the compound this morning............

It was lovely speaking to some of the local residents and fishermen this morning who were obviously taking advantage of the great weather.

James and the team are making progress with introducing the haul road. As the deliveries are starting to happen that little more often at the moment please take care. Once everything is set up they will only happen as and when we need them as the project continues.

Have a lovely Bank Holiday weekend and please feel free to drop me a line if you wish to ask anything.
