Pumping stations that consume as little energy as possible and are built to run permanently: Such features characterise the work of Egemin Automation.
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.
Transferring water from a lower to a higher level always costs energy and should be done as economically as possible. Therefore, at Egemin Automation 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). Egemin Automation 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.
