  5. Case Study: New Pumps Make Excess Water Removal More Efficient For Power Generation Facility
    10/24/2007

The pumps removed excess water that accumulated from rainfall and storm drains, equipment wash down, and general water overflow, and redirected it to a retention settlement basin. They featured a vertical design, wherein the motor is located above the pump, and a line shafts extends down into the length of the sump. As the pumps aged, they became increasingly expensive to maintain. Plant management began to question the long-term feasibility of efficiently maintaining the pumps to meet the plant's operational expectations
