Passavant® Deep Pumping Station South Jeddah, KSA

In the years 2012-2014 the construction of one of the largest deep pumping stations in Saudi Arabia in South Jeddah was scheduled. The two shafts have a diameter of 32 m and a depth of 40 m. In order to be able to remove the existing solids and debris in the wastewater,  The pumping station requires a screening system for mechanical pre-treatment. In addition, a variety of shut-off devices are required to retain the wastewater. The existing product portfolio of the Aqseptence Group fits perfectly to the existing task and the requirements of the deep pumping station in South Jeddah.


Passavant® COB-C
  • Rugged design
  • High cleaning capacity
  • Reliable grabbing of bulky screenings

  • Roller penstock to minimize friction and ensure smooth running
  • Roller penstock equipped with a balancing valve / penstock, in order to be able to equalize the pressure
