Industrial PENSTOCKS ltd won a new contract to design, manufacture, supply and supervise the installation of a high-head special Stainless Steel Grade 316 Penstock in Dubai UAE.

The Penstock was designed to suit a 15m on-and-off-seating head.  The Penstock (see picture) is a 2400mm x 2400mm square all Stainless steel Grade 316 construction and has been installed in the Emirate of Dubai for Dubai Municipality. The project is the Waste Water Pumping Station, DM reference DS138/2A, at location Nad Al Sheba 4.

The Penstock is the 2nd of its kind to be supplied and installed by the company in the region,  the 1st also being a 2400mm x 2400mm sq, this design though suitable for a 21.5m on-and-off-seating head.

This particular market requires a greatly reduced leakage tolerance, one that is not found anywhere else in the world. The on-site hydraulic test results recorded that the design, manufacture and installation of the Penstock performed a near drop tight solution; results recorded were 50% less than allowed.

This new design is breaking new ground for Industrial PENSTOCKS ltd in the market pushing the design further than any previous Penstock manufacture has before, this with the aid of the latest cad and FEA software.

Despite strong competition, industrial PENSTOCKS ltd secured the contract, because they were able to comply fully with the client’s Dubai Municipality specification, and was able to demonstrate a proven track record for this type of high head design, in the market.

In addition to this project Industrial PENSTOCKS ltd has an excellent track record for supplying similar heavy duty 2000mm dia 16 bar rated knife gates valves at Al Wathba in Abu Dhabi and 96 No Special Duplex Stainless Steel Penstocks for the Ras Az Zawr Desalination plant in Saudi Arabia.

Super size high pressure Knife Gate Valves designed and built by Industrial Penstocks, are playing a vital part in the smooth-running success of the new Wathba 2 wastewater treatment plant in Abu Dhabi.

The 1.6m and 2m diameter carbon steel and duplex stainless steel Knife Gate Valves, which operate at 10 Bar, were recently installed at the 300,000m3/day capacity plant that treats sewage in the United Arab Emirate to a rigorously high standard.

Industrial Penstocks completed its order on time and on budget following comprehensive pressure testing that would ensure safe and efficient operation of its bi-directional Knife Gate Valves, which form part of the preliminary, primary and secondary process treatments, including activated sludge settlement, biological nutrient removal, filtration and disinfection.

Treated sewage effluent from Wathba 2 is piped to the Mafraq WWTP approximately 50km away, where it is then conveyed directly to the Abu Dhabi municipality’s irrigation network. Part of the Independent Sewage Treatment Plan 2, the building of Wathba 2 also serves as a reforestation project designed to combat desertification.

Industrial Penstocks Ltd, together with Industrial Pipeline Supplies Ltd and Industrial Valves Ltd offer a complete solution for quality flow control equipment to the water, wastewater, power, petrochemical and process industries.
