DEGRÉMONT strengthens its presence in the equipment market in the United States

Posted: Friday 11th October 2013

Degrémont, a SUEZ ENVIRONNEMENT subsidiary, has been selected to design and supply Climber® Screen mechanical bar screens for the US Army Corps of Engineers’ Permanent Canal Closures and Pumps (PCCP) facilities, near Lake Pontchartrain in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Degrémont will design and supply seventeen Climber® Screen mechanical bar screens for channel debris removal which will provide critical frontline protection and safeguard the integrity of the three pump stations. The massive screens will handle an aggregate flow of 59 million m3 per day

(15.7 billion gallons) and will vary between 7 and 9 meters in width. With seventeen units each reaching a depth 15 meters, PCCP will be one of the largest screening projects undertaken by Degrémont to date.

The US Army Corps of Engineers selected PCCP Constructors, a joint venture consisting of Kiewit Louisiana, Traylor Bros., and the M.R. Pittman group for the construction of three facilities that will provide permanent risk reduction from heavy tropical rainstorms and 100-year storm surge events, in replacement of the interim closure pumps and structures installed after Hurricane Katrina in 2005.
