Turnkey Overpumping

Water and wastewater infrastructure suffer wear and tear due to internal and external factors such as corrosion, pressure surges etc., and consequently need repair and maintenance to continue operating at peak performance. Shutting down critical infrastructure to carry out repairs is not often a feasible option, making a temporary bypass necessary to avoid operational disruption while rehabilitating the pipe network.

Address emergencies safely

Sometimes, environmental events such as heavy rains, floods etc. can also overwhelm the existing infrastructure, necessitating a bypass implementation as a “safety valve” to mitigate negative consequences related to system overload.
