ANDRITZ to supply irrigation pumps for Egypt
International technology Group ANDRITZ has received an order from CONCORD for Engineering and Contracting, Cairo, Egypt, to supply 17 vertical line shaft pumps, including a set of spare parts, for a pumping station providing the water supply to the Nubaria irrigation canal, located south of the city of Alexandria.
Start-up is scheduled for 2018.
The pumps supplied will be individually adapted to the customer’s specifications and achieve an aggregate flow rate of 11.7 m3 per second. Each pump achieves a head of 28 meters at a shaft power of 222 kW.
Decisive in award of the contract to ANDRITZ were the special technical features and the low life-cycle costs of the ANDRITZ pumps as well as the many years of experience that ANDRITZ has in this sector, with numerous references in the Middle East and Africa. ANDRITZ first supplied irrigation pumps and equipment to these regions back in the 1960s.
