The 6 Anavalos Pumps units of vertical turbine pump type have been in operation for over a year on Lesvos Island in Greece. These pumps are part of the local thermal power station which generates a maximum installed capacity of 107MW. These pumps work continuously to help maintain the energy production of the power station. The power station provides electricity for the local community and is an essential infrastructure for the island. With the reliable operation of these pumps, the power station can continue to provide electricity to the area.
To withstand the harsh and corrosive environment of sea water, the 6 units have been constructed using high-quality duplex stainless steel. This material is chosen for its superior corrosion resistance and durability which ensures longevity and operational efficiency of the units. The use of such high-grade material reflects the commitment to quality and reliability and is a testament to the expertise applied in designing and building the units to withstand the harsh oceanic conditions.
Each pump can perform 1500 cubic meter per hour at 40m of total dynamic head. The six pumps are controlled by inverter, so that there is always a constant pressure in the system with parallel operation depending on the needs of the station. The alternate operation of each pump ensures that all pumps have the same working hours, which is actually provides long lasting operation in the system.
