Hidrostal pumps provide increased capacity at Swords WwTW

Posted: Wednesday 20th November 2019

Hidrostal, the renowned manufacturer of pumps for the wastewater market, has assisted Irish Water with its €22.2 million upgrade at Swords Wastewater Treatment plant in Co. Dublin. The newly upgraded plant has increased its capacity to 90,000 population equivalent (PE) as well as ensuring protection to the nearby Broadmeadow Estuary from wastewater pollution.

Hidrostal’s replacement pump

Hidrostal has supplied two new pumps to replace the aging pumps installed over a decade ago. The pumps are submersible screw centrifugal non clog pumps for pumping both general and will be installed in the inlet and storm chambers. In addition to their non clog pumping capabilities the pumps are also renowned for their high efficiencies, steep and stable hydraulic curve, non-overloading power curve and low NPSH.

In addition, Hidrostal had also supplied a hire pump to Irish Water for use at Swords WwTW which, having the same hydraulic end dimensions, fitted neatly into the existing installation. This pump which had been on long term hire has been working so effectively onsite that Irish Water have made the decision to keep it.

Irish Water have commented that they are committed to investing in the wastewater treatment infrastructure at Swords to support the needs of the fast-growing population there. Hidrostal are delighted to have been of assistance in this commitment.
