Project details

Client: Water Corporation

Location: Newman, WA

Duration: June – July 2017

Project Background

In May 2016, MCS completed a 3D laser scan of this pump station. It was determined that there was over 65% loss of the original concrete cover on the walls, with areas of the lower walls missing large patches of concrete. Severe corrosion could also be seen to much of the pipework.

What did we do?

MCS was contracted to complete the structural rehabilitation of the pump station walls, completed using the MCS whaler system patent. Click here to see how this works.

In addition to the structural relining, a new PVC lined top slab was fabricated and installed. All new internal components (including riser pipework and valves), odour filter equipment and a free-standing lifting slewing jib crane were also fabricated and installed.
