To supply water to arid regions of saurasthra and kutch through the Narmada Canal network, the Government of Gujarat floated large EPC/turnkey packages. Components include large pump-houses (1,500 m2), storage reservoirs (12,500 m3) and water mains (2,000 mm). VMS was engaged by GWIL as well as by EPC/turnkey contractors like L&T, IVRCL, Essar, etc. For GWIL, best practices in design and construction to provide consistency across the board were formulated. Representing the EPC/turnkey contractors, VMS designed for optimization. A special feature of the design, amongst many others is, Vertical turbine Pumps supported over structural slabs. The frequency of the Pump house structure was checked to avoid resonance with the operating frequency of the Pumps.
