As part of Anglian Water’s Integrated Operational Solutions (IOS) programme, Barhale have delivered a new Booster Pumping Station in Silverstone, Northamptonshire. This is to help meet the increased demand in water supply that occurs intermittently throughout the year when events are held at the nearby race circuit.

This is especially important during the British Grand Prix weekend in July. Each year the drastic increase in water demand puts a tremendous strain on the existing water network. This is caused by nearly 400,000 members of the public who visit the circuit over the three days and the many thousands more who camp in the surrounding areas in the week leading up to the event.
