Wiring and Commissioning Service
Offered as part of our pump station maintenance services, wiring and commissioning is a great way to make sure your new pumping station is up-and-running correctly.
Having arrived on-site, our trained engineer will:
- Notify the site agent of their arrival
- Inspect the site to ensure installation can be carried out
- Position vehicles so that equipment and tools can be easily off-loaded, without causing any obstruction
- Pull pump cables through the duct to the control panel location, using draw wire that was installed by the client prior to our arrival
- Gland off pump cables into the bottom of the control panel and terminate them internally in accordance with the wiring diagram
- Check pumps at ground level for rotation, by witnessing the direction of the impeller
- Suspend level control equipment and pull cables through duct to control panel (again using draw wire installed by the client prior to arrival)
- Gland off level control cables into the bottom of the control panel and terminate them internally in accordance with the wiring diagram
- Set the level control to the correct position
- Check pump overloads and set them appropriately to the full load current
- Test pumps, level control and control panel function in all modes
The main goal is to test all connections and ensure the station is working as it should. Once satisfied with its performance, we will issue a wiring and commissioning certificate for your records.

Any other comments regarding the commissioning that we should be made aware of:
Write a review and let shoppers know what you think of this product.
I just thought I would drop you a quick line to thank you for your supply & commissioning on my last project at the Olympic Park, I found your service immpecable; Delivery was without a hitch, equipment & drawings "all in the box" and backup on the end of the phone. Commissioning on the day agreed no fuss, with your engineers more than happy to help & advise in all aspects of the task. I just wish we were able to engage other contractors like yourself who "do what it says on the tin!"
Once again thanks for your help.
