Wyong Shire Council is seeking tenders for the upgrade of the Ourimbah Water Pump Station (WPS17)
Ourimbah Water Pump Station is owned and operated by Wyong Shire as a key element of the Gosford-Wyong Water Supply system.
The Pump Station and its related transfer mains were built in 1987 with a capacity of 100 ML/day for two-way water transfers between the Gosford and Wyong reticulation systems. The two high voltage pumps originally installed at the station were selected on the basis of anticipated future demand predictions that have not materialised. The pump station has rarely been used since being put into service.
To rationalise the operation of WPS17, Wyong and Gosford Councils have determined to refit the pumping station new pumps and switchgear better suited to the current predicted Year 2050 demand for the transfer of water between the Wyong and Gosford systems of 25 ML/day.
The pumping station has been decommissioned with the original pumps and high voltage power supply having been removed.
This tender invitation is for the design, supply, installation and commissioning of two new pumps, associated pipework and flow control equipment, the supply, a new SCA and all associated cabling, four new electrically operated valve actuators and other ancillary works.
A mandatory pre-tender meeting will be held at the site located at 39 Chittaway Road, Ourimbah, commencing at 10.00 am on Tuesday, 15 January 2013.
