The Challenge –
Gibraltar has very little fresh water of its own, so when the Gibraltar authorities required a new fire system for providing seawater to the top of the Rock, we were asked to provide an answer.
The Solution –
Seal-priming seawater resistant pumps capable of over 220m head? Not the easiest specification. So, we split the task and had all bronze self-primers feeding into horizontal multistage pumps with 220kw drivers.
In total, there were four pairs of pumps with a totalled installed power of over 900kw. Once installed, all of the pumps, drivers, controls, pipework, valves, were commissioned for the client.
Customer Benefits –
using industry standard equipment throughout, but in a novel fashion, gave the customer the result they required. Have YOU go a challenge for us?
