International Training Course on Pump Technology for Water Supply


Along with regional development related to water resources, pumping works often play indispensable roles in various infrastructures ranging from farmland irrigation, municipal water supply, urban drainage to sewage disposal, etc.For successful implementation of such pumping projects, it is indispensable to apply modern turbo pump technologies and to provide appropriate planning and design based on accurate engineering practices for optmum utilization of resources. In the field of waterworks, various kinds of pump are utilized for pump facility, such as intake, transfer and distribution pump station. It is beneficial to acquire the fundamental technology and applications of pump.


  • The seminar is intended to introduce the fundamental approach to planning and design of pumping facilities.
  • In view of more useful knowledge in practical works, the applications of pumping equipment for intake and transfer pump station including operation methods and water hammer phenomena are lectured.
  • Site visit to the water treatment station and pump facility is planned during the seminar.
