Construction and commissioning of a new potable water reservoir pump station. Scope included a new pump station building, pumps and motors, transformers and transformer enclosure, prefabricated switch rooms, electrical works and control system programming, installation of a pressure vessel, pipe work, pipeline cut ins and connections, earthworks, retaining walls, pavements and storm water and all other work required for the construction of a fully operational pump station.

Complex Challenges:

Due to its remote location and a mining boom, competition for locally available skills and materials was a major obstacle. Local procurement of materials was preferred both for flexibility in managing delivery times and to reduce the carbon footprint in the delivery chain.
