Dutch pump manufacturer BBA supplied two BA300K and one BA-C500 diesel driven mobile pumps during the renovation of the historic pumping station Gelderingen of the Dutch water board Reest en Wieden.
The water board controles the water levels in the local polders. One of the polders is Gelderingen where the water board operates a pumping station that was built in 1933. The station was renovated last summer.
Three large mobile pumps
The project started with the installation of temporary pumping equipment, consisting of three new diesel-driven pump units from BBA Pumps.
During the renovation these pumps took over from the pumping station without any loss of capacity, and as such guaranteed the correct water level.
The three mobile pumps had a total capacity of over 100 m3/min (6000 m3/h). Two BA300K D324 diesel driven pumps, which together account for a maximum of 46 m3/min, have both been set up next to a big 20" pump set, type BA-C500S11 D711 with a capacity of over 60 m3/min.
The pumps have been connected to a modern operating system making it possible to automatically and independently start and stop them, depending on the volumes of water flowing in from the polders nearby.
These super silent pump units continued working during the night, without causing any noise disturbance to the surrounding environment.
