Installation of a large HDPE pumping station at the Les Bassins Rouges farm
In order to optimize his yield for his third fall crop, and in anticipation of future expansions, Mr. Bélanger recommended the installation of a transfer reservoir to accelerate the flooding of his six fields spread over more than 34 hectares (85 acres). The development of two additional ponds and the installation of two additional pumps are also being considered to maximize harvest time when the site reaches its full potential.
Large diameter HDPE pipes 2130 mm (84 in.) were used for this pumping station. The contractor, Jasmin Bilodeau, installed 15 linear metres (50 feet) of HDPE pipe. In order to allow the installation of 3 pumps, 1200 mm (48 in) diameter Solflo Max chimney manholes, 5.18 m (17 ft) long, were welded to the pipes. Filled with sand, the station is also protected by a concrete structure to direct water, prevent erosion and support the pumps. This HDPE pumping station will collect water from the lake located on the bevel side of the fields and raise it to 6.7 m (22 ft) high to redirect it to the bogs for flooding.Discover our Conveying Solutions
