SMEC provided the detailed system and preliminary water hammer analyses for the pump station hydraulic system and development of a computer simulation of the system.
SMEC undertook a preliminary assessment to assist Taisei Corporation for works being completed under an engineering procurement and construction contract for the proposed Mussafah Pump Station and pipeline to Al Wathba.
The objective of the project was to assess the likely maximum and minimum surge pressures generated by the Mussafah Pump Station system and to check the options for suppressing the pressures to an acceptable limit.
The system consists of 40 km of water supply pipeline ranging from 600 mm to 1200 mm diameter and feed into two storage reservoirs.
