The new Pinkston Water Sports Centre will be Glasgow’s first competition standard, purpose built, paddle sports centre.
The three Bedford submersible axial pump sets will be installed in a cascade canister arrangement in the submersible pumping station within the water sports channel.
The pumps will generate total flows of up to 7000 l/s. The slalom will include a circular loop with the pumps lifting the water 1.5m to create a static head. Within the loop there will be canoe slalom training and competition, white water kayaking and coaching and swift water rescue training for the emergency services.
