Vertical turbine pumps going to West Kauai Energy Project

Flowserve Corporation is being contracted to supply vertical turbine pumps to McMillen Jacobs Associates for its design, engineering, and construction services on the West Kauai Energy Project (WKEP). Through an agreement between the Kauai Island Utility Cooperative (KIUC) and a U.S. utility and power generation company, the WKEP is pursuing hydroelectric generation, solar photovoltaic (PV) generation, pumped hydroelectric, and others.

Flowserve vertical turbine pumps support the hydropower and pumped storage components of the project. Upon WKEP’s completion, the project is expected to equip Kauai with 25% of its electricity needs.
