Drosendorf Plant


Flood control in Drosendorf

Prior situation

Pumping stations are pump manufacturer Caprari’s field of expertise, as shown by the project Flood control Drosendorf. The municipality of Memmelsdorf in the region of Upper Franconia was forced to take measures against the constant threat of floods on the river Leitenbach. As a result, a combination of river training works, dikes and protection walls was built in two construction phases.

Caprari solution

The technological heart of the construction is a pumping station equipped by Caprari with two units of type KCD-200NG featuring a DN200 pressure flange: Electrical submersible motors with two-channel impellers for wastewater and sewage, made largely of resistant cast iron. Each pump conveys 105 l/s over a height of 3.3 metres. They ensure the drainage of the inner side. A motor power of 6.5kW is enough to guarantee efficient continuous operation if needed. They are installed in a monolithic cylinder made of reinforced concrete with an outer diameter of 3300mm and a total height of 4450mm. Maintaining the pumps is extremely easy thanks to Caprari’s two stainless steel guide rails.

Benefit obtained

The manufacturer offers a wide range of pumps and control technology solutions for wet or dry installation to meet virtually every need in municipal, industrial or agricultural water management. Using prefabricated elements that are placed into the station during installation, Caprari and its partners can build complete and ready-for-use pumping stations within 72 hours.
