Xylem Awarded Contract for Beijing Drainage Pumping Project
This May, Xylem was awarded a $2.9 million contract from the Beijing Drainage Group to install Flygt submersible sewage pumps in 19 pumping stations in downtown Beijing. The new pumps will allow the stations to operate at higher capacity and with higher drainage efficiency, increasing water storage space and preventing overflow.
“We are proud to have been chosen to be part of this meaningful project with the BDG,” says Shuping Lu, vice president and country director for China. “Our Flygt pumps reduce the costs associated with pump station design, excavation, civil work, installation and commissioning, while maintaining superior performance even under heavy flooding conditions.”
Xylem, headquartered in White Plains, NY, is a global leader in water technology focused on providing solutions to the world’s most challenging water and wastewater problems. In 2012, the company was named on the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index as advancing sustainable solutions. Beijing Drainage Group (BDG) Co.
