Global pumping solutions provider ANDRITZ is pleased to announce it has received an order for 27 vertical volute pumps from Megha Engineering & Infrastructures Ltd (MEIL), based in Hyderabad, India.
The ANDRITZ equipment is due to be installed across three pumping stations near the village of Kaleshwaram in the Indian state of Telangana.
The order is valued at more than €60m, and start-up is scheduled for June 2018.
One pumping station conveys 660m³ 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 in the cities Karimnagar, Medak, Nizamabad, Nalgonda, and in the Ranga Reddy district.
ANDRITZ’s vertical volute pumps are well proven worldwide and, above all, feature low energy consumption, achieved due to their very high hydraulic efficiency of up to 90%.
