New 24-inch Mobile Emergency Pump from BBA for Dutch Water Board


Renovation work was started at the end of August on the Wetering polder pumping station. Two stationary pumps will be replaced in order to process larger capacities of polder water in the future. A third pump is preserved in the historical pumping station as an item of industrial heritage.

For the water board, Drents Overijsselse Delta, this was a good time to invest in a new large volume emergency pump. The mobile emergency pump purchased in 2014 has a good capacity utilization and during the refurbishment its capacity could be further expanded.

The project contractor Flowserve selected the BA600G D635, which is capable of pumping 5000 cubic meters of water per hour. Due to the high pump efficiency and low head, a compact 4-cylinder Stage IV diesel engine is suitable for the drive. In addition to low fuel consumption and silent operation, this also reduces the impact on the environment.

The two mobile pumps are positioned next to each other in order to guarantee sufficient dewatering in the polder. The renovation project is expected to be completed by the middle of December.
