The new 18-ton pumps presented a considerable installation challenge.

Sulzer pumps are customized to meet the unique requirements of an historic pumping station

Finding just the right pump for an application can be quite a challenge, especially when the building presents several constraints and there is an unusual electrical supply. Sulzer took on this challenge in New Orleans and updated a near antique installation with the latest in pumping efficiency and reliability.

Operated by the Sewerage and Water Board of New Orleans (SWBNO), the Oak Street Intake Pump Station is a critical link in the city’s water supply network. The station is one of two facilities that draw water from the Mississippi river and transfer it for treatment and onward distribution to homes as well as businesses across the city. Built in the 1920s, the station’s three main pumps can each deliver up to 80 million gallons (363’000 m3) of water per day.
