Pump experts unite and celebrate
Boulting collects inaugural award at Pump Centre Conference
Specialist in pump system optimisation Boulting will be awarded the prize for Project of the Year at the 2015 Pump Centre Conference on May 14. The company will have two booths at the Telford exhibition: S23 and the Project of the Year stand.
Boulting achieved the award for its ongoing work at Thames Water’s 90 year old Littleton Raw Water Pump Station (RWPS). The brief for the Littleton project required Boulting Pump Management to increase the performance of the site in terms of reliability, efficiency, capacity and automation, whilst still maintaining its 1920’s character. .
The resultant annual energy savings from the upgrade project are predicted to exceed 4.9 million kilowatt hours with an energy cost reduction close to £0.5 million.
The project is just one example of the total optimisation solutions that Boulting’s Pump Management Team provides. This will be the focus of the company’s presence at the conference, which is expecting more than 800 delegates.
“When optimising a station like Thames Water’s Littleton, some companies would only look at the pump,” explained Brian Conway, Pump Management Director of the Boulting Group. “We have the expertise and equipment to evaluate performance from ‘source to tap’. In addition we utilised our capability to design, manufacture and install the solution. By offering a fully integrated approach we are confident on delivering our predictions.”
“Thames Water originally estimated the Littleton RWPS upgrade would take at least two years, but Boulting expects to complete the project in half that time,” continued Conway.
“At the Pump Centre Conference we will be exhibiting the innovative services and expertise that went into making the Littleton project such a success.”
As well as pump system optimisation services, Boulting also specialises in supplying systems integration, low voltage (LV) motor control centres, switchgear, control panels, telemetry services and full mechanical and electrical installation.
