PS Kerklaan - first Vision-MV
The pumping station Kerklaan of the Waterschap Hollandse Delta was recently equipped with a fish-safe pump.
The installed pump is of the Vision-MV type, a new type of fish-safe pump developed by Bosman Watermanagement.
This new type of pump was specifically developed for smaller pumping stations and ensures that fish and eels can pass the pumping station undamaged.
Fish safety is achieved through the use of a 1-blade screw centrifugal impeller in a spacious snail shell.
Bosman Watermanagement installed this fish-safe pump on behalf of main contractor Facta Spijkenisse B.V.
For Waterschap Hollandse Delta this is the first pumping station where the new fish-safe pump type Vision-MV has been used.
With the new Vision-MV pump the capacity of the pumping station has been increased from 4 to 8m³/min.
Besides the pump, the discharge pipe and the casing with electrical installation were replaced so that the pumping station is ready for the future.
