Ebara Corporation, with its proven record of delivery in Southeast Asia, organized seminars on “Applications of Pumping Equipment” for civil service workers, engineers of private companies, students and university personnel at Royal University of Agriculture in Phnom Penh on July 8-9, 2014.
The pumping equipment seminar attracted 45 participants, used video and case studies when presenting lectures centered on basic knowledge about pumps and fundamental planning on pumping stations used in irrigation facilities.
Agriculture is one of the main industries in Cambodia. The irrigation facilities are used during dry seasons when there is a water shortage, this helps increase the agricultural production. Irrigation facilities using these pumps are very important, as they are responsible for supporting the water supply to Cambodia’s agriculture. Through the seminar, the people of Cambodia in need of irrigation facilities, gained better understanding of these pumps.
Ebara engages not only in providing pumps for irrigation facilities and other products and services, but in engineering seminars and other international cooperation activities in an effort to assist the development of Southeast Asian countries.
