Mott Macdonald Bentley asked IQ Engineers to help with work on Runswick Bay Sewage Pumping Station.
Due to the failure of some pipework, the work was required at short notice. Four pumps and associated pipework required replacing on the station which was a low flow, high head arrangement. In addition, access was restricted due to Runswick Bay's location by the sea.
We worked with MMB to organise the work as some of the pipework and pumps were supplied by them whilst other parts were supplied directly by IQ including some bespoke pipework. Due to the specialist shape of the pipework, it was decided that IQ would remove the sections, return them to the workshop and fabricate a replacement which was then installed. We were able to complete the fabrication overnight and return to site the following day to install the new piece. This ensured that the shut down of the SPS was kept to a minimum.
IQ installed all parts and accommodated the restrictions of low tide to achieve a good job well done.
