Valves for man-made river

Metso Automation has received a EUR 2.7 million order to supply control valves for the Great Man Made River (GMMR) project, a gigantic fresh water project in Libya whose goal is to transfer water through an underground pipeline network from huge aquifers in the deserts of southern Libya to the cities of the country. The water will also be used to enhance domestic agriculture. GMMR is said to be the second largest ongoing water project in the world, and is carried out by the Great Man-Made River Authority and funded by the Libyan Government. Metso Automation’s total delivery for the phase III of the GMMR project comprises eight 36-inch control valves. From these, five Q-ball valves will be delivered for Al Gardabiya pumping station and three Q-ball valves for the Assdada pumping station. The deliveries are scheduled for January 2005. Project phase III will improve a water supply to the cities of Tripoli, Benghazi, Tobruk and Gadames.
