Following a severe electrical storm, the state-run Ensenada oil refinery caught fire and the oil refinery’s pump station was completely flooded.
The refinery’s operator Yacimientos Petrolíferos Fiscales (YPF) commissioned Xylem to remove the flood water. Four of Xylem’s Godwin dewatering pumps removed 208 000 cubic metres of water from the refinery.
YPF has now gone on to purchase 15 high-power Godwin dewatering pumps in order to be prepared for future flooding emergencies.
