More information

Background information:
This pumping station was built around 1915 near Velserbroek, now along the A9. This pumping station was there to withhold the water level in the Wijkermeer polder (ca 460 ha).
In the '80s, the function of the pumping station was taken over by a more modern drainage system. Thus the old pumping station was threatened with demolition.
Due to the unique Bronze 25HP diesel engine, the pumping station has been preserved and is currently managed by volunteers.

Architectural details:
The Diesel pumping station stands on a concrete foundation that also serves as a kind of barrier.
The pump house consists of brick masonry and various deliberately shaped windows.
The roof has red earthenware tiles. The roof is also finished with a dark green cornice.
