Pumping Power

The West Deptford Energy Station in West Deptford, N.J., is a brand new 715-mw nuclear power plant with CH2M Hill as the contractor. It required eight Goulds 3196 ANSI pumps, or an approved equal. Pentair worked closely with its distributor and was able to get its 3550 Series ANSI pumps accepted by the facility. Pentair then prepared a competitive pump package for its distributor, which submitted its bid to CH2M Hill and was awarded the job. Pentair received a purchase order a short time later and started assembling submittal data.
