Indar: Large submersible motor pump sets for Las Vegas

Monday, October 16th, 2017 von admin

Facing the worst drought on record in the Colorado River Basin, as lake levels continue to fall, the Southern Nevada Water Authority (SNWA) is building a low lake level pumping station to ensure Las Vegas and Southern Nevada maintains access to its primary water supplies in Lake Mead.

Lake Mead water levels have dropped more than 40 m (131 feet) since the drought began in 2000. The new pumping station will allow SNWA to pump water from Lake Mead from an elevation as low as 267 m (875 feet) above sea level into the water treatment facilities and further on to provide water to the city of Las Vegas and neighbor community area.

Andritz: Irrigation pumps to India

Friday, September 15th, 2017 von admin

Andritz has received an order from Megha Engineering & Infrastructures Ltd. (MEIL), Hyderabad, India, to equip three pumping stations with a total of 27 vertical volute pumps near the village of Kaleshwaram in the Indian state of Telangana. The order value is more than 60 million euros. Start-up is scheduled for June 2018.

One pumping station conveys 660 m³ of water per second from the Pranahita River and then through other pumping stations into a reservoir. This reservoir will ensure a sustainable supply of water for agricultural irrigation.

KBL: A Step towards Food Sufficiency

Thursday, March 9th, 2017 von admin

Kirloskar Brothers Limited (KBL) has partnered for food sufficiency with the Government of Senegal, a country in Western Africa. Before 2005, Senegal’s irrigation infrastructure was under-developed. Government of Senegal was not able to meet the expected food sufficiency levels of the country because of the haphazard irrigation techniques. For achieving better means of livelihood, the Government of Senegal felt the urge to resolve the issue of unemployment among the rural youth and stop their exodus to cities.

The major challenge faced by Senegal was the need for skilled labour. In North Senegal, lack of proper irrigation equipment was identified as the foremost problem. Even though there was abundant water available in the Senegal River, there was no mode to direct it to the fields in sufficient quantities required to irrigate rice. Alongside, South Senegal was grieving over existence of excessive saline surface water for irrigation purposes. The feasible alternative was to tap ground water in order to receive a supply fit for the yield.

Grundfos: How is the pump doing?

Tuesday, October 4th, 2016 von admin

grundfos_pressebild_grmWells, waste water treatment plants, water reservoirs, elevated tanks, water distribution networks, collection channels, rainwater retention basins, waste water treatment plants – the water industry operates a complex network infrastructure for water supply and waster water disposal.

The high fixed costs of these infrastructures force those responsible to an intensified view of the variable costs. This can only be done by the energy efficient operation of all technical units, in particular the pump system. The basis for this is the transparency by the recording and analysis of the relevant energy data. However, pumps in small and medium-sized water treatment and sewage treatment plants generally do not operate in the view of a technician. And the distance to a central control panel makes the connection of a cable impossible from the aspect of costs.

Sulzer Extends the High-Efficiency Water Pump Range

Friday, September 23rd, 2016 von admin

smd_small_fullSulzer introduces an extension to the SMD axially split pump range towards lower flows and implements a higher level of standardization for cost-effective solutions and short delivery times. The SMD pump range is developed for a wide range of high-volume flow applications where raw, clean, sea, or brackish water is pumped. Such applications are water abstraction, water transport, desalination, water treatment, supply, and distribution. The pumps can also be used for firefighting, drainage, or distribution of heating and cooling media in residential and industrial systems.
