Kirloskar Brothers commissions India’s largest concrete volute pumps

The commissioned pumps are at the first of five 800 MW units of a 4000 MW thermal power project for Tata’s Coastal Gujarat Power Ltd in Mundra, Gujarat.

Kirloskar Brothers is executing an order for 10 cooling water concrete volute pumps for this project. Each unit consists of two sets of concrete volute pumps with a capacity of 17 500 litres per second per pump driven by 5.2 MW HT motors. All 10 pumps will be installed at a single location, making it the world’s largest condenser cooling water pumping system for a thermal power plant handling 175 000 litres per second.

There are more than 150 Kirloskar Brothers concrete volute pump installations worldwide, including Europe and America.
