Drinking water for the Big Apple
New York – a city with millions of inhabitants that need to be supplied with clean drinking water every day. More than half of New York’s drinking water is conveyed to the city via the Rondout-West Branch Tunnel of the Delaware Aqueduct – a 71 kilometre-long tunnel which supplies up to 37 cubic metres of drinking water per second via a natural incline.
To enable the tunnel to be pumped empty for repairs as quickly as possible, KSB supplied especially powerful single-entry submersible borehole pumps. The output of each pump is around 2,000 cubic metres an hour at a maximum rated head of 320 metres.

KSB provides drinking water for Singapore
The SingSpring seawater desalination plant in Singapore is one of the biggest desalination facilities in Asia. It produces 136,000 cubic metres of drinking water a day, covering ten percent of the island state’s water demand.
As an established specialist for desalination, KSB was able to supply Singapore with numerous high-pressure feed pumps, filtered water pumps, booster pumps and intake pumps. Four pumps from the KRT K range, each capable of handling up to 5,000 cubic metres per hour, pump fresh seawater into the plant’s prefiltration system. 10 variable speed Omega pumps transport the prefiltered seawater to a total of 10 HGM®-RO pumps; with a rating of 1,170 kilowatts each, these high-pressure units transport 708 cubic metres of seawater per hour.

Sydney pumps drinking water with KSB pumps
The biggest city in Australia obtains part of its drinking water from the Nepean Dam, which is located some 100 km south-west of Sydney and its several million inhabitants. For transporting the water, Sydney relies entirely on water technology from KSB. Three high-efficiency KSB pumps of the RDLO series extract raw water at the lowest point of the dam and transport it to a filtration plant. It is then treated and pumped to the city via a network of pipelines.
KSB offers a wide selection of powerful pump ranges that guarantee not only maximum availability and operating reliability, but also outstanding efficiencies and low maintenance costs.
Protecting a World Heritage Site
Berlin’s Pergamon Museum is one of the most important museums in Germany. In the cellars of this historic building, waste water is handled by an AmaDS³ pump station with solids separation system from KSB. This waste water pump station is especially dependable, ensuring reliable operation thanks to upstream separation systems which protect its pumps against clogging from solids.
KSB products ensure reliable drainage of houses, public buildings and industrial facilities all over the world. Whether it’s rainwater, groundwater from drainage systems or highly solids-laden waste water that needs to be transported, KSB has the right products for the job.
Europe’s deepest waste water pumping station
In St. Petersburg, Russia, a major waste water project has been under way since 2005. The aim is to conserve water resources and to protect the Baltic Sea against the discharge of untreated waste water. This is where Europe’s currently deepest waste water pumping station is located, reaching down to a depth of 92 metres. Here, pumps from KSB handle the rainwater and waste water that collect from a twelve kilometre-long tunnel system. An average of around 600,000 cubic metres of waste water is pumped into a channel from which it flows by gravity to the waste water treatment plant. The bulk of the work is carried out by 12 dry-installed pumps from the Amarex® KRT K 400-710 submersible motor pump range.
From municipalities and cities to industrial companies, individual buildings and private households, KSB provides comprehensive solutions for waste water transport. Whether performing surface drainage or transporting aggressive waste water, KSB offers a broad range of equipment for waste water transport, pumping stations and sewage treatment plants.
