Andritz has supplied 12 multi-stage axial split case and high-pressure ring section pumps to the Water Authority of Jordan.

The energy-efficient pumps are now securing the water supply of the capital city Amman.

Andritz was selected to refurbish the two key pumping stations Lib and Wala for the water supply to Amman.

Six Andritz multi-stage axial split case pumps from the ASPM series were installed to increase the total capacity of the Lib pumping station to 2500 cubic metres per hour. The scope of supply also included six high-pressure ring section pumps from the HP43 series for the water distribution to the Madaba region.

Both pump models have particularly high efficiency and, therefore, very low energy consumption. Andritz says that the new system should lead to energy savings of up to 20%.
