Ajax Gas Plant – Industrial Stormwater and Process Water
This package pump station was designed to meet a low flow of industrial process water with added low flows of industrial stormwater. The dual purposes of this pump station required shaft-driven centrifugal pumps with the motors located above-grade. The precast concrete sump was cast with a rectangular monolithic base to eliminate extra joints below the grade. The rectangular sump included a barrier wall, or weir wall, to separate grit and suspended particles from any stormwater runoff to protect the valves and pump impellers.

Why They Chose Romtec Utilities
Enbridge Energy Partners and Audubon Engineering were working together to build the Ajax Gas Plant. One aspect of the plant was this stormwater and industrial process water pump station, and these agencies chose Romtec Utilities to design, manufacture, and supply their pump station system. The package approach to pump stations was attractive to Enbridge because aspects of the pump station could be managed by its engineering staff, such as the electrical controls. This approach was attractive to Audubon because it would complete one aspect of the total construction project allowing their staff to focus on the key systems of the Ajax Plant operation. Romtec Utilities provided a custom package that met the unique needs of this industrial client.
