Xylem Inc. has announced that it has been awarded a $2.9 million contract from the Beijing Drainage Group (BDG) to install Xylem’s Flygt pumps in 19 pumping stations in downtown Beijing.
The new Flygt submersible centrifugal sewage pumps will improve the stations’ water storage capability and prevent overflow by providing more efficient drainage and flood control.
“We are proud to have been chosen to be part of this meaningful project with the BDG,” said Shuping Lu, vice president and country director for China. “Our Flygt pumps reduce the costs associated with pump station design, excavation, civil work, installation and commissioning, while maintaining superior performance even under heavy flooding conditions.”
Beijing Drainage Group Co. Ltd is a wholly state-owned wastewater utility established with the approval of the Beijing Municipal Government.
