ABB drives cut Bristol Water power bill
Bristol Water was concerned to improve the energy efficiency of its pumping equipment at its Purton pumping station. Jim Reckhouse, Engineering Manager Bristol Water, says: "The original pumping equipment had been installed in 1963 and tests showed that it had fallen below a good standard of efficiency. A review of the site recommended new pumping plant that would be more suited to the duty we now have. This would see the pumps reduced in number from five to three and making them all the same size."
