A consortium headed by ITT Corporation (NYSE: ITT), a world leader in water transportation and treatment, has been awarded a $74 million (Rs 333 crore) contract to provide two water pumping stations for the Sardar Sarovar Narmada Nigam Limited's (SSNNL) Kutch Branch Canal (KBC) lift irrigation project.

Combined, these two pumping stations will have the capacity to pump 196 million liters of water daily. The order is slated to be completed by the end of 2012. The KBC project, on completion, will bring water to 2.79 lakh acres of land in 182 villages of Kutch district, a company official said today.

Mr Sam Yamdagni, President and Managing Director of ITT Corporation India Pvt Ltd, said ITT will execute this project in a consortium with Megha Engineering and Infrastructures Limited (MEIL).

ITT's Flygt vertical column discharge pumps will be the largest of their kind to be built and/or operated in India. The contract also calls for complete pump house equipment including electrical, mechanical and instrumentation.

Established in 2007, ITT India has its Technology Centre and manufacturing facility in Vadodara.

In April, ITT India had won a $11.65 million (Rs 52.48 crore) order to provide circulating water pumps to a thermal power project at Tuticorin, Tamil Nadu.
