The Realito Pipeline is located in Mexico´s central states, Guanajuato and San Luis Potosi. Water harvesting is carried out at the dam located in Guanajuato, where three pumping stations are in charge of feeding the flow to a tank. It is here that Power Electronics has just finished commissioning its medium voltage equipment, four 1.4MW XMV660 Drives and eight 1.5MW VS65 Starter series. An installation made jointly between the technical teams of Mexico and Spain.
After pumping, the water is conducted to the water treatment plant that is responsible for dealing with the flow. Subsequently, the treated water is also fed by gravity to the city of San Luis Potosi, covering a total area of 134km and driving the aqueduct that will supply over 850,000 people. The aqueduct is expected to be fully operational by next week.
