ANDRITZ to supply irrigation pumps to India
International technology Group 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 cubic meters 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 percent.
