- Wattle Park pumping station is designed to pump approximately 1250l/s from Wattle Park to Terminal Storage.
- Wattle Park Pump station consists of 3 no’s of Horizontal, split case, centrifugal pumps (KSB Omega 300-560 B SC G F) each with capacity of 416 l/s at 61m head each powered by 350 kW, 400 V motor operated by VSD.
- Each pump is fitted with flywheel of weight 1711 kg providing inertia of 197 kgm² for surge mitigation.
- Each pump is automatically controlled by their local PLC or manually controlled via the HMI panel. A separate System Wide Control (SWC) PLC will provide control signals to each pump’s PLC and the critical control links, SCADANet and the other local PLCs on the site.
- Operating philosophy When 2 inlet valves of tanks (Auldana, Rostrevor or Woodforde) call for water, the pump starts. While in operation it maintains a pressure of 232m AHD at Rostrevor by the pressure feedback signal from pressure transmitters in the Terminal Storage PSV station.
- Volume: 110 Ml/day (1250l/s x 24hrs)
