Description and Health & Safety

The company Pumpemodule AS has developed an innovative, sustainable wastewater lift station

Main feature of the lift station is that it lies underground when in use.

It can be raised above ground level for maintenance.

  • Dry-installed sewage pumps
  • Standard technology, no need for special tools
  • Operated by an advanced software program
  • Soft starter for pumps included
  • Better health & safety for operators

A complete and robust wastewater lift station.

  • The whole station is placed under ground
  • Innovative and practice-based design
  • Safe and easy to operate
  • Less maintenance
  • Reduced life cycle costs

No disturbance of the environment.

  • Extremely low noise level
  • Almost invisible when operational, only the top cover is visible
  • Top cover can be adapted to the environment around
  • Manhole in top cover for emergency access
  • Placed directly on the sewer line: less change for leakage.

Health & safety

Sanitation workers are typically at high risk from faecal pathogens in their daily work through handling of faecal sludge and wastewater, and equipment used in emptying, conveyance and treatment of faecal sludge and wastewater, work in confined spaces, proximity to aerosols created by treatment processes, and cuts and abrasions from co-disposed solid waste. They are also exposed to other chemical and physical risks from use of hazardous cleaning agents and heavy labour.

Ref: Guidelines on sanitation and health. Geneva: World Health Organization; 2018.

Our main focus when developing lift stations is the health and safety for those working with maintenance of wastewater facilities. This has been achieved by minimizing the need of maintenance and prevent possible contact with wastewater by the operator.


After installation we will train the operators how to operate the station. “It’s actually quite easy” is a general comment we often hear. “Yes it is!” is our answer. The lift stations user manual includes among others a shortlist of how to raise the lift station above ground for maintenance.
