New LeeSan Pumpout Station for Tarbert Harbour on Loch Fyne in Scotland

Monday, 5th August 2019

Situated on the eastern side of the Loch, Tarbert Harbour is a premier location for leisure boating. It provides a safe haven for sailors and has now expanded its “green” credentials by installing a sanitation waste pumpout station. 

The harbour management contacted Lee Sanitation, the UK's No.1 supplier and installer of pumpout stations, to carry out this work.

Bearing in mind the future plans to increase the number of berths at the marina, the LeeSan team made a complete assessment of the existing arrangements for sanitation waste (the harbour had no existing Pumpout Station) and specified the ideal system, while also making suggestions for reconfiguring the existing infrastructure to meet the required criteria.

These proposals were accepted and LeeSan installed a LS160WTS Station. This has an integral transfer unit which allows for an efficient discharge of the waste through smaller diameter pipework, over maximum distances and heads.

Also included in the specification was an energy chain to cope with the rise and fall in tide and a 1/200 flood level of 4.8m.

The system was successfully commissioned and handed over to the client at the beginning of June 2019.

To complete the relationship with the Harbour, LeeSan arranged for a local pump engineering company to provide prompt ongoing servicing and maintenance ensuring that the system would continue to give good service for many years.
