Project Name: Mobile Booster Pump Performance Enhancement Project Type: Unpaid Student Project Project date: Project to commence 1 July with an estimate it would take 6 weeks Duration of project: Estimate of 6 weeks Project description: QUU have developed a mobile booster pump for use in its water network as a contingent measure during water outages. This pump can be deployed when water supply is impacted by a burst or planned activities. Alternate supply is via a tanker and the mobile pump can provide the pressure to supply customers. This project is to develop and implement a series of performance trials to identify a series of operating parameters for the mobile pump. This data is to be used to develop an operating procedure for the unit for different isolation scenarios. The project will identify, source and procure the appropriate fittings to connect the unit into the water supply network, as well as other requirements such as staff (electrician, fitter), servicing and maintenance and future improvements.The project will identify and develop an appropriate technology to enable the unit to be remotely monitored and controlled.
