Location: Badu Island, Torres Strait, QLD

Year of completion: 2010

Project Challenges

Being in such a remote location there were constraints in the supply of ready-mix concrete, skilled labour to install pumps and pipework therefore the more work that could be pre manufactured off site in this location the better.


Mullaly supplied 2 x 3m x 5m Deep Wet Well / Valve Pit Combo with 2 100mm discharge Homa Pumps.

The benefits of this solutions were:

  • The Mullaly pump station was supplied to site completely fitted out which meant the only requirements being the external connection of pipework, electrical connection and final pump installation.
  • Reduced time for installation from up over 6 weeks with in-situ concrete to under 1 week with the Mullaly FRP solution
  • A lot less labour was required to install the Mullaly pump station to this remote site saving money
  • Less time needed for cranes on site therefore reducing costs and improving site safety
