ECS Engineering Services has won the contract to redevelop and refurbish the Environment Agency’s Peakirk Pumping Station, near Peterborough, at the junction of the Rivers Welland and Folly. The aims of the project are to improve the whole drainage of the surrounding area and provide improved flood prevention capabilities.

The site includes three outdoor electrically powered pumps and three further diesel driven pumps in a pump building, all on a metal and concrete bridge straddling the River Welland. The adjacent control room contains the switch gear, power supplies and automatic level controls that keep this station running.

The flood defence system is based on a pair of wooden pointing doors designed to prevent flood waters reaching properties upstream of the pumping station, which ECS is to reengineer. The doors will be refurbished and their mounting posts replaced. In addition, ECS has proposed a simple mechanical counterbalance system that will be designed and manufactured in house for closing the doors in periods of high water levels.

To reduce the need for manual handling, ECS is to upgrade the existing overhead manually operated travelling building cranes by installing electrical drives and hoist systems.
