Kerklaan Pumping Station
The Kerklaan pumping station (South-Holland) was recently equipped with a fish-friendly Vision-MV pump.
This new pump type is specifically designed for smaller pumping stations and ensures that fish can pass through the pumping station without a scratch. By using a single-blade centrifugal fan in a large housing, fish safety is guaranteed.
Bosman Watermanagement installed this pump upon request of Facta Spijkenisse B.V.
For the Hollandse Delta water board, this was the first pumping station to which this new fish-friendly pump type was applied.
After our new pump was installed, the capacity of the pumping station was doubled. Moreover, the tubing, housing and electrical installation were replaced so that the pumping can last for years to come.
