India: pumps KEPL shipped API BB4 pumps to Mirfa International Power and Water Company
Pune-headquartered Kirloskar Ebara Pumps (KEPL), a joint venture of Kirloskar Brothers (KBL) in India, has successfully completed the manufacturing and testing of a high pressure ring section type boiler feed water pump with a 3.9 MW motor.
Pune/India – These pumps are for a 1,400 MW greenfield combined-cycle power generation plant - Mirfa Independent Water & Power Company, Abu Dhabi (UAE).
The testing of the high pressure boiler feed pump took place at Kirloskarvadi, Maharashtra and was witnessed by officials from various users and EPCs of the power industry. The KEPL pump model 250 X 200 KBDH is an eight stage pump designed for high pressure boiler feed water application. The BB4 pump is a multistage between bearing, ring section and single casing pump designed for high pressure applications. This pump has a motor rating of 3,900 kW having capacity of 740 m³/ hr and a 1,380 meter differential head achieved at a speed of 2,974 revolutions per minute (RPM).
The Mirfa Independent Water and Power Plant (IWPP) is a power and water desalination plant with a total combined net power capacity within the range of 1,400 and 1,600 MW of power generation and a total combined net water capacity of 52.5 million imperial gallons per day (MIGD), located on the Arabian Gulf coast, at Mirfa, approximately 160 km west of the city of Abu Dhabi in the UAE. This project will involve the acquisition of certain existing water and power facilities; the development, design, engineering and construction of new power and water facilities; as well as the operation of the plant.
“Supply of these six high pressure boiler feed water pumps to Mirfa Independent Water and Power Company is a great achievement for us. We are glad to manufacture and supply the biggest boiler feed water pump from our state-of-the-art manufacturing facility at Kirloskvadi,” said Managing Director, KEPL, Aseem Srivastava.
