MLS Rebuilds West Africa Water System

Gary Miles - Monday, April 11, 2016

 

With increasing demand for a reliable source of potable water, the government of Cameroon in 2015 embarked on an ambitious project to rebuild and replace their insufficient, aging colonial French water infrastructure. The robust, new system will deliver much-needed water to the capitol, Yaounde. Engineers at MLS have designed a powerful, scalable new system, which utilizes some of the existing built-ins, while delivering substantially more water volume to the central civic reservoir. Once completed, the new water system will feature a series of five Goulds vertical turbine pumps powered by US Motors, rated at 1250HP, delivering 6600 GPM @ 581 ft. This project will be completed later in 2016.
