Manila Water modernizes 21st Pumping Station in Taguig
Manila Water has recently upgraded the pumps and motors at 21st pumping station (PS) to meet increasing water supply demand in Taguig City.
The upgrade is composed of rightsizing three (3) sets of motor pumps with capacity of 90 million liters per day (MLD) of water each, operated with 700 horsepower (HP), as well as modification of pump and motor base and fittings.
The previous pumps of 21st PS started their full operation in 2000 and have a design capacity of 146 (MLD). These pumps have been refilling the 29 million-liter Fort Bonifacio pumping station reservoir 24/7.
Manila Water Taguig-Pateros Area Business Manager Emmanuel Ferrer said that the upgrade will greatly help his team in ensuring quality service to all customers. “The increased efficiency of our 21st PS will be of great help in ensuring that the reservoir will be able to meet the demands of the customers, which include the Bonifacio Global City as well as nearby residential areas, for reliable water supply,” Ferrer added.
In 2016, the average production of the 21st pumping station was only 137 MLD. With these newly upgraded pumps, its production is expected to boost up to 180 million liters per day of water (MLD) at peak, serving more than 560,000 population in Taguig City.
