The pumping station is a floating pontoon with an anchoring system 18 metres long and 14 metres wide. It will be equipped with three 1,000 m3/h D-type rotor pumps and a new 2,500-metre long D600 penstock. It will be powered using NWPC’s integrated switchgear.
A floating pumping station is cheaper to construct than a stationary one and helps to deal with water level fluctuations providing best water intake conditions.
The commissioning is scheduled for the second quarter of 2023.
