LeeSan has completed the construction, installation and commissioning of a replacement bilge waste transfer station for Cardiff Harbour.

The custom-built unit uses many elements from the company’s range of specialist equipment for black and grey water waste handling and replaces the old equipment which had been in place since 2003.

The system features two pumps for suction and two for discharge providing double redundancy in the event of a pump failure.

The new equipment will continuously separate the tank contents through filters and will pump the water away to the main sewer via the existing Elsan facility.

Specified level

Electronic monitors will calculate the percentage of oil remaining and alert the operators when it reaches a specified level so it can be tankered out.

The system has been specifically built to meet the harbour’s requirements with the tank unit fabricated from a combination of high-density polyethylene and GRP. 

Other tanks involved in the installation have been fabricated with 110% bund and are installed, along with the pumps, in a purpose-built pump room.

All the facilities - including holding tank and bilge pump out - as well as portable toilet disposal, can be used by customers without the need for an operator.
