Cooling Water Pumps Kirloskar Brothers Installs Cooling Water Pumping for Tata Power’s Plant
Collaborating with Tata Power, Kirloskar Brothers has installed the world’s largest circulating water pumping system at the company’s Mundra UMPP (Ultra Modern Power Plant). A mammoth 10.5 million litres of water is circulated with the help of KBL’s 10 Concrete Volute Pump sets every minute.
Pune/India – The Coastal Gujarat Power Ltd (CGPL), Tata Power’s wholly-owned subsidiary, which has implemented the 4000 MW (800 MW x 5 units) UMPP requires massive amounts of water to condense the heat generated in the production of power.
Ravindra Ulangwar, Associate Vice President & Head - Power Sector, KBL said, “The World’s largest circulating water pumping system is a salute to Indian engineering. The Mundra UMPP is India’s first and most energy efficient coal-based thermal power plant using supercritical technology to create lower Greenhouse Gas emissions and its main power generation equipment is sourced from Japan and Korea. And here comes Indian technology to create a circulating water pumping system that rubs shoulders with the world leaders.”
