MIDDLE EAST MONSTERS

BY JIM KULLER

Centex Fluid products in partnership with M/S Arabi Company Qatar have supplied the largest trailer mounted pumps for ASHGHAL (Qatar Municipality) involving 12NHG28 pumps driven by 700 HP Diesel engines. These pumps are designed for a flow of 2000 m3/Hr at head range of 70 to 100 meters. Pumps are supplied with double volute casings which play a vital role in reducing radial loads, and are a unique feature of Cornell sewage pumps

Under competitive bidding the client ASHGHAL has awarded Centex Fluid products the project after evaluating many merits of the subject bid.  ASHGHAL will be using the Cornell pumps for sewage by-pass operations - emergency back up during pump station failures.  Centex has engineered and implemented this innovative design to place this massive assembly on a trailer with built in fuel tank, which is the first of its kind in Middle East. The trailer mounted monster is hand made in the USA.

Qatar has been undergoing a phenomenal development in infrastructure with close to $50 Billion being invested in infrastructure projects, predominantly for improving sewerage, roads and water supply related projects. Cornell is very proud to be associated with Centex Fluid products and their esteemed client, ASHGHAL.
