One pumping station conveys 660 cubic meters of water per second from the Pranahita River and then through other pumping stations into a reservoir. This reservoir will ensure a sustainable supply of water for agricultural irrigation in the cities Karimnagar, Medak, Nizamabad, Nalgonda, and in the Ranga Reddy district. ANDRITZ’s vertical volute pumps are well proven worldwide and, above all, feature low energy consumption, achieved due to their very high hydraulic efficiency of up to 90 percent.
