Passavant® COB-XXL & Passavant® Penstock

Passavant® Deep Pumping Station

Situation

The large amount of water occurring, especially in the rainy season, led to regular flooding of the Hangares metro station. To prevent this problem, the construction of the deep pumping station was planned and implemented. The deep pumping station Hangares is operated by SACMEX (Mexico City Water Authority) and is designed for 50,000 inhabitants. It is a bypass of Lumbrera 8. The pumping station is equipped with its own power generators. Aqseptence Group supported the new construction by supplying the rakes and shut-off devices required for the pumping station.
