The government of the Philippines decided to adopt a new technology registered on JS Innovation Program* for its Metro Manila Flood Management Project.
The new technology gAll Speed/water Level Type Horizontal Submersible Pumph will be employed for the pump gate of the project that Department of Public Works and Highways orders.
A pump gate has features of a short work period and a small construction cost because it has little equipment and requires no pump house. The new pump has additional advantages that it runs at a lower water level and gives less burden to electronic devices than the conventional horizontal submersible pump.
Recent global climate change or urbanization accelerate flood inundation in the metropolitan area of Manila. The promising new pump will contribute to mitigating the damage from flooding significantly. The new technology is also expected to be adopted by other southeast Asian countries suffering from similar problems.
