APRIL 2013 WATER 165 Water Business above the cabinet or remotely (on a tank stand or adjacent to an access ladder). Each system is custom-built to best suit the individual site conditions. All that is required for installation is a concrete "pad" for the unit to be anchored to and a sample water supply. The system is then installed and commissioned. GWM chose to supply their own GSM module (which is tted inside the cabinet), which provides feedback to SCADA. The Outcome: Problem solved.

The Gorman-Rupp VS4 pump is an engine driven, wastewater pump capable of handling solids and stringy materials. The pump was installed at the Orica Water Treatment Facility in Yarwun, Queensland in November 2012. The unit pumps from a stormwater catchment approximately 6.5 metres deep, then to a treatment system, before discharging offsite. The unit pumps 35 litres per second @ 63.1 metres head. The unit was recommended for this application by Dowdens for its high performance, high head and ability to handle solids. In January 2013 the pump's capabilities were challenged with the extreme weather conditions and massive rainfalls to the area. The customer was impressed with the pump's ability to cope with this level of stormwater. Orica Water also appreciated the ef ciency of the other two Gorman- Rupp, Electric Drive U6 units installed at the Water Treatment Facility. The three Gorman- Rupp pumps operating at the plant were able to endure the oods while maintaining their performance, resulting in a rapid disbursement of the excess waters. Hydro Innovations are the exclusive Gorman-Rupp Pump distributors for Australia, with staff and of ces based in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane.
