Brief Description of the Project :

The work is part of the Great Man-Made River Water Utilisation Project (Phase I-Central Zone). Verification of the Preliminary Studies and Preparation of Detail Design of the Pump Stations at Grand Al Gardabia (Sirt B) and Al Gardabia (Sirt END) in Libya.

These pump stations are required to deliver water through irrigation water distribution networks to meet the varying demands on the system. The total area to be irrigated is 10 000 ha approximately.

Grand Al Gardabia (Sirt B) Pump Station:

4 duty + 2 standby (for large forms),
1.28 m3/sec for each pump (h= 62 m head)

4 duty + 2 standby (for small farms),
0.234 m3/sec for each pump (h= 65 m head).

Al Gardabia (Sirt END) Pump Station:

4 duty + 2 standby (for large forms),
0.208 m3/sec for each pump (h= 67 m head)

4 duty + 2 standby (for small farms),
0.716 m3/sn for each pump (h= 57 m head)
