Bridgeway Consulting Ltd were employed to examine the submersible pumps at the base of the Birkenhead shaft, which removes excess water from the Mersey Rail Tunnel. The pumps are located at the base of the shaft, which is located over 60 metres below ground level. The examination was carried out to the pump strainers as excessive corrosion of the bolts and flanges, was suspected by Jarvis, the pump maintainers.
The pumps usually work 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year to keep the River Mersey at bay and out of the Mersey Tunnel. As a result they can only be shut down for maintenance for a short period and the inspection had to be carried out in close co-operation with the plant maintainers to ensure the safety of the divers.
The whole operation was co-ordinated from the surface to the divers in the shaft, which was meticulously planned in advance. It is testament to the skill of the team that the examination went without a hitch to enable the pumps to be re-started without any delay.
