ABB drives save 1,000 a week for Laois County Council
An ABB low voltage AC drive has cut pump maintenance costs for a local authority by 1,000 a week. The water services department of Laois County Council in the Republic of Ireland had problems with the sewage pump at its Connolly Street Pumping Station in Mountmellick, a town of around 5,000 residents. The foul sewer submersible pump is housed in a building at a road junction in the town and is six metres below the surface level. The location is the second largest of eight pumping stations in the area.
