Pumping station automation

Optimal operation of pumping stations

Pumping stations that consume as little energy as possible and are built to run permanently: Such features characterise the work of Agidens.

We design, build and maintain pumping stations for the Flemish Highways Agency (Agentschap Wegen en Verkeer), the Walloon Ministry of Equipment and Transportation (Ministère Wallon de l'Equipement et des Transports, MET) and the Dutch water authorities.

Maximum efficiency

Transferring water from a lower to a higher level always costs energy and should be done as economically as possible. Therefore, at Agidens we consider your pumping station as a whole.

Thanks to our broad knowledge of hydraulic, mechanical and electrical components and the systems used to control them, we are able to deliver optimum efficiency. We do this by:
  • using a correct mathematical model for pump control
  • using the very latest control techniques to optimise the pump characteristics.

Total operational reliability

You need to be able to rely on your pumping station at all times, especially now that water levels are rising. To deliver such reliability, we produce designs in which all critical elements are redundantly catered for.

For peace of mind, you need a pumping station without a single point of failure (SPOF). Agidens has the experience to guarantee you just that.

Reversible pumping stations

In certain situations, for example in pumping stations on tidal rivers, it is possible to recover energy. In such cases we can design, install and maintain a reversible pumping station for you.
