Husum’s picturesque harbour has been closed for necessary dredging activities. The tidal influence in the harbour has been stopped to allow for these activities. As a result the natural release of fresh water from land behind the dyke at low tide is no longer possible.
Our client, Klaar Baggertechniek, asked us to provide pumping solutions at two locations to guarantee the fresh water levels, one of which safeguards the town of Husum itself, at Mühlenau.
Using four electrically driven pumps (two per location) and frequency controllers, Van Heck provided a minimum flow of 5000m3/h at Porrenkoog and 9000m3/h at Mühlenau.
Van Heck used 3D drawings to design the pump set-up. Due to the limited amount of time available for installation (must be done at low tide) and the limited space at Porrenkoog, these drawings were essential to ensure no surprises during installation.
Both solutions are now up and running.
