Allweiler-Farid Pumps

ABB motors drive Egypt’s fish farming

Solution from Allweiler and ABB makes up key component as North Africa’s most populous country starts developing major new food industry.

As part of an ambitious initiative to increase the fish resources of the country, the Egyptian government has launched two fish farming pilot projects in the Kafr el Sheikh Governorate of the Nile Delta.

Allweiler-Farid Pumps has supplied the pilot fish farms with 32 pump units, each powered by an ABB Process performance low voltage M3BP 355 motor.

“Working with ABB was beautiful. They supported and helped us in smoothly accomplishing this project. This was the first fish farm to be applied in Egypt, and its successful completion is providing Allweiler-Farid Pumps with a great opportunity to win the bid for the second and third projects coming up soon. In that case we will definitely work with ABB again,” says Hossam Farid, vice chairman and CEO of Allweiler-Farid Pumps.

Pumps make up an essential component of any fish farm, both for supplying the system with new water and for dealing with wastewater. For the pilot projects, the Egyptian government body GAFRD (General Authority for Fish Resources Development) was looking for a truly high-quality pump solution, with equipment made in Europe. Allweiler Farid Pumps won the contract to supply the pump units in tough competition, in turn selecting ABB Process performance low voltage M3BP 355 motors for powering them.
