The KSB pumps will equip a number of pumping stations belonging to the “Costanera de Pilar y control de inundaciones” project. They will be used to prevent future flooding during the high-water season along the tributaries of the Río Paraguay.
The city of Pilar is located 230 km south-west of Paraguay’s capital Asunción, on the Argentinian border.
Each of the Amacan submersible motor pumps weighs 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.
The pump sets are expected to be delivered by the end of this year.
