The client required the ability to vary the flow of the water due to the complexities of disposal capacity. The variable speed ability of the generators granted the client flexibility to manage their water demand to suit the environmental conditions.

Scale of project
UON was contracted to design, manufacture and install a pontoon system to dewater over 5 Billion litres from an old open pit mine. The key success of the Pit Dewatering Works was the use of UON’s patent-pending GMC unit for total pumping control where pit access and logistics is challenging.
UON deployed electric Grundfos pumps powered by our GMC generators to deliver over 30% fuel savings compared to competitors.
