Each component will be controlled individually and automated using Boulting PSOp (Pump System Optimisation), installed within SCADA managed Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs).
The PSOp software was developed by Boulting Pump Management and has been used extensively in pump systems for Thames Water.
In addition, the remote control feature of the Boulting PSOp software meant even further cost savings for the Littleton system.
Relying on its expertise as an established solutions provider, the Boulting Group installed a High Voltage Switchboard that enables the pump station to use PV power when available and supplement it with grid power when necessary.
