Ebara Corp has shipped a submersible motor pump with a 1000 mm-bore from Japan to a pump station in Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam.

The volume of water that must be treated at the Vietnamese pumping station is increasing due to flood countermeasures taken to address population growth and urbanization.

This upgrade will triple the total drainage capabilities of the pump station.

The Ebara pump is light and compact, enabling it to be installed in the limited space of the pump station’s existing facility.

Ebara recently ran technical seminars on pumps and chillers at the Vietnam-Japan Institute for Human Resources Development (VJCC) in Ho Chi Minh City.
