800kW vertical pump drives for Lebanon

Customer: Lebanese Water and Energy Ministry

After the failure of two motors in a water pumping station the official supplier of the Lebanese Water and Energy Ministry was looking to source fast replacements from a German motor manufacturer. The original motors of Italian brand were unable to withstand the loads and high temperatures in the pumping station.

Menzel Elektromotoren GmbH could speedily replace both defective squirrel cage motors by constructing technically improved versions with an IC06 forced ventilation. Though a larger size IM V1 was chosen, the original flange diameter and vertical design were maintained. The two new squirrel cage motors featuring 800 kW rated power are optimally equipped to withstand overload and overheating. On-site installation and commissioning were also handled by Menzel's staff.
