Three new pumping stations on Texel

Pumping stations De Schans, Dijkmanshuizen and Eijerland were built as part of the dike reinforcement project for the Waddenzee on Texel. Construction of the pumping stations proceeded smoothly and delivery was on schedule. The Hoogheemraadschap Hollands Noorderkwartier can now look ahead for decades.

Each pumping station has two fish-friendly concrete volute pumps of the Vision type. Each pump has a capacity of 150 and 200 m3/minute at a head of over 2 meters. Through a performance measurement it was not only demonstrated that the pumps deliver the required capacity, but also that the promised ambitious installation efficiency has been achieved.

In addition to the pumps, Bosman Watermanagement also provided the design and realisation of the complete W+E installations under the UAV-GC, in close collaboration with partner Vlaar Techniek. The civil works were realized by Friso Civiel, Van Hattum & Blankevoort and Boskalis Nederland.
