Xylem’s Godwin pumps fill new Panama Canal lock basins
To support the water transfer project, Xylem installed 15 Godwin diesel-driven pumps, deployed from the U.S. In June, these pumps transported up to 122 million gallons of water per day (MGD) from Lake Miraflores to fill the third set of locks on the Pacific. Over a period of 22 days, the project consisted of pumping enough water to fill 90,000 average sized swimming pools.
