NEC has been adopted to deliver a dry weather flow interceptor and pumping station at the outfall of a large storm drain in Tai Kok Tsui, Kowloon, #HongKong. The work involved building a three-storey sewage pumping station and nine 4.8 m wide, 3.5 m high penstocks across the Cherry Street box culvert where it discharges into the typhoon shelter. The pumping station wet well, screen chamber and valve chamber were constructed in a deep sheet-piled excavation in reclaimed land next to the sea. To save time, most concrete elements were manufactured off-site and lifted into position using a 400 t floating crane. Despite challenging working conditions and supply chain inflation, the project was completed on time and within budget.
