Bedford Pumps save stakeholders £3m on fish friendly scheme
Bedford Pumps’ Fish Friendly pumps successfully pass eels and fish in compliance with the EU Eel Regulations. Bedford Pumps worked closely with Peter Brett Associates to evolve the civil engineering and pipeline design at Webb’s Hole Pumping Station to carefully mitigate damage to eels and fish whilst at the same time delivering stakeholders £3M in capital savings against their national framework estimate. The station, which also includes the creation of some bird habitat, is the first of its kind to fully embrace the regulations from concept through to commissioning.
Bedford Pumps Ltd is one of the UKs leading manufacturers of large, bespoke water and waste-water pumps, and is located in Bedford, England. They are part of the Hidrostal Group of companies.
