Job Description:

Twelve Godwin HL250M,
400 horsepower, electric drive

Dri-Prime pumps are used in a water supply application at a Southeast energy generating plant. The plant uses a man-made lake to supply cooling water for plant operations. Due to the extreme drought in the southeast in the last few years, water levels in the lake are dangerously low. Godwin Dri-Prime high head pumps are utilized to move water from a nearby river at a rate of 44,900 gpm to the lake to supplement the water supply. Long suction lines, heads to 230 feet, and a 160-foot elevation change were characteristic of this set up. Godwin technicians fused 21,000 feet of 18-inch HDPE on site and installed the complete project.
