High Mountain Emergency Pumping Relies on Cornell 6NHTA in Package

icon-75x75-miningThe winters can be brutal in British Columbia, especially at 7000 feet up a mountain. A BC-based coal company had a problem with dewatering, and needed Canada Pump and Power to provide powerful pumps—QUICKLY!

Basic Pump PicEven with the remote location 746 miles (1,200 Kilometers) from BC’s main coastal cities, Canada Pump and Power was able to rush pumps to the mine location and begin pumping 7.39 million gallons per day (33,600 cubic meters of water per day) within 36 hours of receiving the emergency call for pumps.

The distributor laid over 7,000 feet of Bauer pipeline by hand to transport the liquid away from the mine site to a holding area. Two Cornell 6NHTA pumps working in tandem were able to address the issue of flooding.

Canada Pump and Power built the 6NHTA onto a high performance trailer package, which runs at 2,000 RPM with a Cat C4.4 continuous electronic engine operating at 142 HP. Once they had received the emergency call, the distributor transferred the pumps from an Alberta staging yard to the site.
