Renmark Irrigation Trust Upgrades
Tonkin Consulting is currently undertaking three projects for the Renmark Irrigation Trust (RIT):
- AR Relift Pumping Station Switchboard Upgrade – upgrade the electrical switchboard and other works as necessary to increase the pumping capacity of the AR Relift Pumping Station by 50L/s (from 275L/s to 325L/s).
- Main Pumping Station HV starter replacement - replacement of three existing vacuum contactor starters with soft start/stop units including a new main circuit breaker. This will include integration of the new starters with existing control equipment.
- Express Main (E Main) Pipeline Duplication - to improve the capacity of the E Main by 700L/s by duplicating approximately 4km of large diameter pipeline. This will provide improved water availability and pressures to irrigators in Renmark East and North. The duplicated main will also provide a branch off for future connection of a new Relift Pumping Station to serve future irrigation areas.
Tonkin Consulting is currently in the design phase of these upgrades, which cover a variety of engineering disciplines. Our electrical team is completing two components, whilst our hydraulic and civil teams are working on the E Main. We are delivering detailed design documentation and technical specifications for all three projects to enable the tendering and construction of the works.
The location of our Berri office is pivotal to the delivery of this project, providing a local presence and understanding of the area.
