Vertical gearmotors in pump stations

Wednesday, November 15th, 2017 von admin

To prevent the city of New Orleans something like the Hurricane Katrina in 2005, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers awarded approximately $615 million for the New Orleans Permanent Canal Closures and Pumps (PCCP) project to keep the city’s three main drainage outfall canals from being overwhelmed in future storms. In these pump stations 17 ABB vertical gearmotors (VGM) will power massive pumps supplied by Patterson Pump Co. The project also includes 17 ABB ACS 1000i and 5000i MV drives to control the pump start-up.

The VGM integrates proven Dodge planetary gear technology with ABB standard low-pole-count motors and is designed for low-speed vertical pumping applications with high-power requirements.  According to Mike Myers, Global Business Manager for Dodge specialty and large gearing, the product offered key advantages for the PCCP project.

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.

The new Synconta has a stronger tank design than the previous range and it can be provided with an optional concrete cover for the load class D 400, which means that it can be driven over for example by a truck.

Synconta is designed for fitting with Sulzer pumps of the Piranha, AS, and MF ranges. The new lifting station replaces the existing Synconta 801, 901-902 range. A concrete cover is available for areas with either pedestrian or vehicular traffic. The tank can be fitted with a plastic lockable lid when installed in areas without any kind of traffic.
