Basin Electric Power Cooperative – Clean Water Industrial Pumping
The Groton Generating Station needed this package lift station to pump clean water as a part of its power generating processes from natural gas. The submersible centrifugal pumps in a duplex configuration meet the pumping requirements for this facility and discharge the water to parallel force mains. A precast concrete, below-grade valve vault holds the system valves and pressure gauges. An outdoor control panel runs electrical conduit to a disconnect panel. Two conductive probes are used for primary liquid level-sensing and backup sensing.

Why They Chose Romtec Utilities
Basin Electric Power Cooperative contacted Romtec Utilities to design, manufacture, and supply this industrial water reuse lift station for the new construction of this power generation plant. Romtec Utilities designed the lift station to handle process water that would circulate between cooling systems, stainless steel holding tanks, and an overflow pond. The electrical controls for the lift station included additional controls for level sensing in the stainless steel holding tanks. The Romtec Utilities panel controls operational valves based on tank level to direct water to holding, overflow, or to treatment. These advanced industrial controls were integrated into the lift station controls for cycling pump starts and stops on level. Romtec Utilities also provided an on-site construction advisor, start-up services, training, and a full system warranty.
