In line with its preparation for the onset of the La Niña phenomenon during the rainy season 2016, the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) was planning to upgrade its two flood pumping stations in Taguig City. The pumping stations are both located along the Circumferential Road 6 (C-6) in Barangays Hagonoy and Wawa
Hagonoy Pumping Station was having a problem with clogging in their existing pumps, which caused serious damage due to floods in the rainy season. They needed a reliable solution that would effectively drain stormwater and prevent floods. High quality of the product and its long operating time were among the priorities for the customer.
Having discussed all the benefits and features of different product brands with the customer, Gotesco offered a Flygt propeller pump, as the best solution for the application.
The scope of supply included inverter duty with built-in fault alarms and contacts, PT-100 sensors on lower bearing and 1st stator winding and leakage sensors on junction box and stator house, complete with monitoring and status (MAS-711) and power analyzer, with 20 meters cable, support beam, holder unit, cable support grip spring unit and level sensor.
MAS 711 is designed to further enhance the outstanding reliability of a Flygt pump. As part of a complete Flygt pumping system, it helps reduce costs over a pump’s lifetime.
“These facilities are major components of the Metro Manila Flood Control Project, particularly the West of Manggahan Floodway. Hopefully, the upgrades made in these pumping stations will totally spare the city of Taguig from flooding and save lives and properties”. MMDA Chairman Emerson Carlos (quote source)
