Pump System Optimisation

Delivering total solutions for optimum asset performance, clearly defined kWh savings and return on investment

From pump and system consultancy and testing to fully automated pump and system optimisation, we take a holistic approach to the complete system. We identify and deliver total solutions for optimum asset performance, clearly defined kWh savings and return on investment.

Uniquely, we deliver a fully integrated engineering solution. Our in-house services include design, mechanical, electrical, PLC, control, remote monitoring and after care for your pumping system. As expert’s we deliver the latest innovations in digital solutions enabling cost effective modernisation, smart data handling and efficiencies in a cybersecure environment.

Whether you are looking to digitalise, require a full or partial upgrade of your pumping systems, we have the expertise and resource to provide the total solution.

Independent technical consultancy for pump systems

We provide independent technical consultancy to our clients. These include major UK water, industrial and hydrocarbon markets, for pumps and systems.

  • Strategic asset programme planning for energy efficiency
  • Feasibility assessment of pump systems
  • Pump station upgrades
  • System surveys
  • Energy budgeting
  • Project scope definition

Pump System Efficiency Testing and Modelling

Our experienced pump and system test engineers use specialised, highly accurate equipment for efficiency testing such as Thermodynamic and/or Ultrasonic testing. Not only do we provide a report of our full analysis of pump system performance, but we also create highly precise models of existing and predictive performance.

By modelling the full system, we are able to utilise a simulated environment to optimise your water supply pump systems.  This low risk approach enables accurate review of cost models and prediction of energy savings. The full suite of testing and modelling includes reservoir modelling to optimise tariff management and optimise reduction in overall energy cost and consumption.

Pump System Optimisation (PSOp) Software

To maximise efficiency we have created the Boulting PSOp software. The software uses all the pump and system characteristics available to meet system demands, but enable control of all pumps to their maximum efficiency, at the lowest Specific Energy Consumption (SEC- kWh/Ml).

Design and build Solutions

Our solutions for providing full or partial pumping station upgrades have a reputation for quality and performance delivered cost effectively.  We provide a fully integrated offer for your project that is characterised by total project control, flexibility, a minimised interface and exemplary safety.

With a suite of in house multi-disciplinary design and delivery engineering capabilities together with CDM2015 Principal Designer and Principal Contractor ability, we can deliver the most cost effective and time efficient programme.

Service and support

We offer a range of service contracts to support your fixed and remote condition and performance monitoring assets and instrumentation such as flow meters, power monitors and most other instrumentation. So whether you require scheduled preventative maintenance, predictive asset monitoring, or 24/7 emergency cover we can provide a tailored package for your needs.


Our initial system survey would typically cover all operational aspects including:
Pipeline diameter & Pipeline velocities
Valve arrangement
Static head variations
Flow variations
Reliability & failures
Specific Energy Consumption
Control Systems


We use specialist thermodynamic test equipment to give us a detailed snapshot of the pump efficiency.
Together with the observed survey data, we produce a fully costed report with recommendations and an achievable ROI.


Drawing on the many resources of Boulting we can offer a complete implementation service enabling us to retain ownership of the entire project and deliver the projected savings.
