Patterson Pump to supply pumps to New Orleans flood control construction projectOctober 15, 2012
A New Orleans flood control project administered by the US Army Corps of Engineers has awarded Patterson Pump a contract to supply pumps and services valued at almost $70 million. According to a company press release, this is an early estimate and the final design specs will not be set until 2013.
The system that is being built is designed to pump nearly 11 million gallons of water per minute. The purpose of the project is to evacuate any excess rainwater from the city of New Orleans.
The project is administered by the US Army Corps of Engineers, but the project has been awarded to the design-build team of PCCP Constructors.
“We congratulate the entire Patterson Pump team for all their efforts in securing this sizeable order,” said Jeffrey Gorman, president and CEO of Patterson Pump. “We look forward to continuing our ongoing work with PCCP Constructors and the US Army Corps of Engineers in providing the pumps for this important project for the greater New Orleans area.”
