ABS pumps for major water project in Turkey
ABS will deliver pumps to one of Turkey’s major wastewater projects in
recent years, a treatment plant and sea outfall construction in Kadikoy,
This significant project further confirms that dry pit wastewater pumps are
a cost-effective alternative to submersibles in certain applications.
Turkey and the surrounding countries are investing heavily in infrastructure
projects, in which water supply and wastewater treatment are important
elements. Thanks to its broad range of water and sewage pumps, ABS has been
successful with several major installations in the region over the past
Dry pit and submersible pumps
The recent project relates to the construction of one of the major
wastewater treatment plants in Turkey: a pre-treatment plant and sea outlet
construction in Kadikoy, a large municipality in the Greater Istanbul area
with an actual population of 1.3 million people. By the year 2020, the
population is estimated to reach 2 million, and the treatment plant and the
marine discharge construction project are important steps in the
implementation of more elaborate treatment facilities in Kadikoy.
ABS will deliver pumps, motors and electrical control equipment for the
project. 16 large dry installed pumps, each with a capacity of more than
1,800 l/s, will be installed in the influent and effluent stations. The
order also involves several submersible ABS pumps. The Kadikoy project will
be finalised in 2001.
Cost-effective solutions in focus
The strategy to offer alternative solutions to pumping applications is more
and more appreciated by municipalities and consultants, and the project in
Turkey is yet another confirmation that dry installed pumps are an
alternative to submersibles in certain applications.
In its commitment to always supply the most cost-effective solution for a
specific application, ABS offers one of the most comprehensive product
programmes in the market for water and wastewater handling with a range of
pumps and mixers including both submersible and dry installed equipment.
