3rd International Conference on
Water and Wastewater
Pumping Stations

Cranfield, Bedfordshire, UK: April 12-13, 2005

Papers presented at this Conference, as outlined in the contents below, are available in a bound volume of proceedings from Mrs Marian Rolfe at BHR Group Limited.

Designing pumping stations is a complex task that involves input from a wide range of engineering disciplines. Successful design of new stations requires an integrated approach that takes into account such diverse factors as: project definition and delivery; integrated system design; station layout and plant options; and control optimisation. The challenges faced by designers are compounded by the requirement to deliver the improvements within strict financial constraints for project design and for the whole life costing (CAPEX AND OPEX) of the delivered station.

Refurbishment or improvements to existing stations, such as those required under AMP4, are subject to similar financial constraints. However, these projects face additional technical challenges including integration of new plant within existing structures; modified operational regimes; and minimisation of disruption to existing works.

The Water and Wastewater Pumping Station Design conference was founded by BHR Group in 2000 to address these issues. The 3rd Water and Wastewater Pumping Station conference is well set to build upon the success of the earlier conferences. The challenges faced by designers remain as before and an integrated approach to pumping station design is still required. The conference provided an ideal opportunity for sharing of latest ideas, products and techniques. The technical conference, brought together not only specialists with a range of expertise but also the best methods and approaches to pumping station design.
