Andritz’s Energy-Efficient Pumps Secure Water Supply in Amman, Jordan


International technology Group Andritz supplied 12 multi-stage axial split case and high-pressure ring section pumps to the Water Authority of Jordan last year. These energy-efficient pumps secure the water supply of the capital city Amman.

With approximately 92 percent of the country being desert and desert-like landscape and a rapidly growing population, securing and optimizing water supply has become of utmost importance for Jordan.

The Jordanian water supply system consumes around 15 percent of the energy the country produces, which is approximately 2,000 GWh per year. Much of this energy is needed to pump water. Due to its proven, highly energy-efficient pumps and worldwide reference portfolio, Andritz was selected to refurbish the two key pumping stations Lib and Wala for the water supply to Amman.

Six Andritz multi-stage axial split case pumps from the ASPM series were installed to increase the total capacity of the Lib pumping station to 2,500 cubic meters per hour. These hydraulic machines have achieved excellent results since being put into operation. The scope of supply also included six high-pressure ring section pumps from the HP43 series for the water distribution to the Madaba region. Both pump models have particularly high efficiency and, therefore, very low energy consumption. The new system should lead to energy savings of up to 20 percent.
