Roma Mine, Reedy Creek, Qld

Accurate Plumbing

The Challenge

Previously, Accurate Plumbing (the Plumbing Contractor) had installed up to 30 pump stations using an alternative system over a 12-18 month period. The pump stations were challenged with speed issues and OHS requirements, further impacted by the cost and time loss incurred by ongoing replacement and servicing.

The Solution

  • Working closely with Les Green, MD of Australian Tanks Accurate Plumbing co-designed a pump station solution which would resolve all issues presented by the existing systems
  • Two (2) Australian Tanks pump stations built to specification for the Mine Camps at Bauhinia and Roma

The Results

  • Australian Tanks delivered pump stations ready to go with anti-floatation bases which allowed Accurate Plumbing to lower the pump station into the excavation and start backfilling almost immediately
  • All inlets were ready to be connected and they did not need to access the internals of the pump stations at all – therefore there were no confined space issues and the install was fast and safe

Products

  • Australian Tanks 10,000L precast tanks
  • 1200mm risers and 900x600mm class D gas tight manhole and frame
  • Mine-ready weather proof, AISI316 stainless steel control panel enclosures with visual and audible alarms, VFD, soft start or DOL starting
Project Testimonial

We pride ourselves on our service

Nick Fowkes
Director
Accurate Plumbing

Having the option to design the pump stations with Les Green at Australian Tanks, ensured these sites had exactly what was required. The pump stations arrived as one complete piece, with all inlets and connections already in place – total “plug and play” systems requiring nothing further than to be lowered into the excavation and connected to the pump network

Enviro Pacific
Enviro Pacific, contractor for a new 7Eleven fuel station at The Gap (Qld), contracted Australian Tanks (ATQ) to supply a 20,000L trafficable and anti-floatation blind sump tank to capture stormwater run-off contaminated with fuel from the area ssurrounding fuel bowsers. With no tank specified on the plans, Enviro Pacific sought a solution which met all industry standards and one which would be approved by 7Eleven.
Hutchinsons Builders
With stormwater run off from surrounding sites, a rapid install was essential. Combined with budget constraints, a cost efficient solution was required for project maximisation.

Reidy Constructions
Australian Tanks provided a 20kPa load rated precast concrete tank that was designed to be trafficable by a fully loaded semi-trailer.
The pump equipment, including all the pipework, valves, upper guide bar brackets, guide rails, discharge connections, pumps, pump lifting chains, and float switches, were fitted in the tank in the Australian Tanks factory.
