- Client: Contractor
- Number of Pumping Stations: 1
- Project Location: Dartford
- System Type: Foul Pumping Station
In October 2016, Paradigm completed the pumping station manufacture and installation at TNT’s latest development. The pumping station required a 10,000 litre holding tank with a dual pump system on Duty/Standby operation with remote monitoring capabilities.
The new 600,000 sq ft Dartford SuperHub is TNT’s latest state-of-the-art sorting hub and opens only months after the completion of the Swindon SuperHub. The site will improve efficiency for the firm, which made €6.9 billion (£5.4bn) in revenue last year, thanks to its links to the Channel Tunnel and Port of Dover.
Steve Meadows, international network and operations director, TNT UK International and Ireland, said, “We’re delighted to announce this new phase of investment in our network. The Dartford area was chosen for its strong road links and proximity to the southeast of England and Greater London, as well as both ferry and Eurotunnel services.”
