LeeSan has been chosen to supply and install a pump out station at Tarbert Harbour.

LeeSan’s engineers took into consideration plans to increase the number of berths at the marina when specifying the system required to help the harbour become greener.

The LeeSan team also specified the existing infrastructure be upgraded to meet the required criteria.

The system chosen was a LS160WTS station that has an integral transfer unit allowing for an efficient discharge of the waste through smaller diameter pipework over maximum distances and heads.

Flood level

Also included was an energy chain to cope with the rise and fall in tide and a one in 200 flood level of 4.8m.

"Many years’ ago my dad, who was from the mining industry, started installing energy chains to carry our pipework where we had to cope with large tidal drops,” explained LeeSan’s director Karl Sutcliffe. “We have now refined this system to ensure that it works perfectly in this type of location.”

To complete the relationship with the harbour, LeeSan also arranged for a local pump engineering company to provide ongoing servicing and maintenance to ensure the system gives good service for many years.
