Cunderdin B Pump Station

Share on:

The Water Corporation of Western Australia engaged GHD to advise on a project to improve the efficiency of the Cunderdin B Pump Station (PS B) which is part of the Goldfields and Agricultural Water Supply (GAWS) scheme.

PS B supplies water in an easterly direction along the Main Conduit (MC) from Cunderdin to Kalgoorlie. The three existing pumps in PS B can operate in parallel to achieve 77.6 ML/d. However due to surge constraints, this mode is currently not possible.

To compensate for hydraulic limitations at PS B, this project addresses the requirements by providing standby capability of the existing pump sets and installing a new single duty pump to provide operational efficiencies during the majority of the year.

The project includes:

  • New high voltage substation building
  • Replacement of all existing low voltage motors with new 6.6 kV (HV) motors
  • Two new pumpsets
  • Three surge vessels
