Protecting the Fenlands from flooding

Six 1250kW ABB drives will be powering the UK's largest pumping station, protecting 700km2 of land in the Cambridgeshire Fens from flooding. The new pumping station at Wiggenhall St Germans will protect more than 25,000 properties, businesses conservation sites and extensive areas of high-grade agricultural land in an area called the Middle Level. The optimum selection of drives technology was made after considering many different solutions for this application, these included options for liquid cooled drives, medium voltage drives and step-down-up transformer solution packages. ABB assisted the consultant and contractors at every stage to consider the CAPEX and OPEX costs for each solution against the mechanical constraints imposed by the new building infrastructure.
