news item image
The KSB Group was awarded a contract to deliver 14 large submersible motor pumps for flood control in Paraguay at the end of last year.
The pumps are intended for equipping several pumping stations belonging to the Costanera de Pilar y control de inundaciones project.
The pumps are to be used to prevent future flooding during the high-water season along the tributaries of the Río Paraguay.
The city of Pilar is located about 230 km south-west of the capital Asunción, on the border with Argentina.
Each of the submersible motor pumps of the Amacan type series weighs about six tonnes and is driven by a 370 kW, 380 volt motor.
The maximum flow rate of each axial-flow pump set is about 18,000 cubic metres per hour.
Delivery of the pump sets is expected to be completed by the end of this year.
