Ebara Vietnam Pump Co Ltd (EVPC) has delivered nine energy saving pumps (three intake and six distribution) to a filtration plant operated by a public water supply company in Da Nang, Vietnam.

The upgrade of the filtration plant’s existing pumps to highly efficient units is the first venture involving Da Nang and the Yokohama City Y-PORT project.

Y-PORT (Yokohama Partnership of Resources and Technologies) is an international technical cooperation project based on public-private partnership that harnesses the Japanese City of Yokohama’s technology and resources in order to help resolve urban issues in emerging countries, and supports overseas business expansion for companies.

The pump upgrade has also been approved for facility assistance in the FY2017 Joint Crediting Mechanism (JCM) financial support project operated by Japan’s Ministry of the Environment.

The new Ebara pumps are expected to reduce the power consumption by about 2 million kWh annually.
