Xylem Pumps for Laos Hydropower Dam to Help Aid 4 Million People

Aug. 20 (Bloomberg) -- Xylem Inc., the water company whose equipment cleared New York tunnels after Hurricane Sandy, won a customized pumps contract for a Mekong River hydropower dam under construction that will help provide electricity to 4 million people in Laos and Thailand.

Flygt pumps for the $3.5 billion Xayaburi run-of-river hydro project will allow fish migration through and around the dam between the Upper and Lower Mekong for about 200 species to aid in spawning and to mitigate ecological impacts, Rye Brook, New York-based Xylem said today in a statement.

Construction on the Laos dam whose design includes fish-passing facilities began two years ago, with operations expected to start in 2019. The pump contract is worth almost $20 million, Xylem said.
