As a subconsultant, Globaltech provided all the process and mechanical engineering for the rehabilitation of the City of Fort Lauderdale Lohmeyer Wastewater Treatment Plant Effluent Pump Station.
The renovated pump station has a capacity of 105 MGD at a head of 235 feet, employs five (5) horizontal, non-clog extended shaft driven pumps ranging in size from 1,250 hp to 1,750 hp, all with variable frequency drives. Design included hydraulic evaluation of the existing 54-inch effluent forcemain, five (5) deep injection disposal wells, evaluation of various pumping arrangements and driver scenarios, and miscellaneous improvements to the existing pump station. Logistics planning was a critical element in this design, as the station had to remain functional throughout the construction project.
The project’s design was completed on budget.
