Inframoura recently concluded substantial work on the waste water pumping station (WWPS) in Aldeia do Mar. The work involved replacing the pump and piping system.
The Aldeia do Mar WWPS, located next to this development, is a facility managed by Inframoura, in which waste from various parts of Vilamoura are discharged. The implementation of more efficient equipment was required.
The facility is configured as a system in a dry well and is composed of three pumps with a total flow of approximately 780 m³/h. Work was undertaken on the facility involving the renewal of the existing pumping systems, replacing them with more efficient equipment and modern technology. The station’s piping and control valves were also replaced.
The solution involved the implementation of pumps suitable for applications with longer operational times, which feature an impeller designed to deal with the challenges of modern waste water, ensuring greater hydraulic efficiency.
