Once the project was started, the client decided to increase the capacity of the pumping station from 280,000 m³/h to 400,000 m³/h and asked Six Construct to keep the same intermediate milestones and final completion date. The Six Construct team accepted the challenge with good will and great spirit. It immediately moved up a gear by simultaneously redesigning the station and putting in place an acceleration plan for the on-site team. Our entire workforce worked day and night, seven days a week to get the job done.
After 11 months and more than 32,000 m³ of concrete poured, the pumping station was ready to start installing screening stations. The first milestone was successfully achieved giving our client access to the first four pumping chambers.By 1 December 2015, we reached the second milestone, enabling our client to provide 22,000 m³/hour of screened and chlorinated water to its customers.
