Electromechanical Devices and Pumps Upgrade in Chi-shien Interception Station, Kaohsiung, Taiwan.
◎ Models Installed：LA Series - Submersible Axial flow Pumps
Yan-cheng District is recognized as the beginning of the establishment of Kaohsiung City, surrounding Shoushan, Love River, and Port of Kaohsiung. The district is rich in cultural assets and historical buildings. Besides, nearby The Pier-2 Art Center with surrounding light rail transit system, also a well-known landmark「Kaohsiung Music Center」 is integrated into the surrounding harbor scenery.

The project applies with HCP 2 units of LA-28100 (Submersible Axial Flow Pumps) and 2 units of AF-1650 (Submersible Wastewater Pumps). As long as excessive rainfall comes, these pumps can be started up and pumping water out to lower the box culvert level. It was proved productive that
