Washington D.C.– Xylem Inc. (NYSE: XYL), a leading global water technology company dedicated to solving the world’s most challenging water issues, featured its custom-design mine water management capabilities at AGG1/WOA (Nashville, TN, March 25-27, 2024). At booth #605, Xylem displayed a high-efficiency dewatering pump developed for a unique application at an aggregate mine in Vaca Muerta, Argentina, the second largest oil and gas reserve in the world.

Located in northern Patagonia, the Vaca Muerta region spans 30,000 square kilometers (km) of challenging terrain. In 2022, Xylem provided a leading oil company with a custom solution to support the longest water transfer in the region’s history. The solution combines a robust Godwin drive, a high-efficiency Lowara pump-end, 5,000 cubic meter (m³) tanks, and more than 100km of hose. Equipped with remote monitoring and control capability, the solution has enhanced safety, reduced diesel consumption and CO2 emissions, and lowered total operating costs at the site.

“Amid intensifying water scarcity and increasing cost pressures, efficient mine water management has never been more important,” said Ken Albaugh, Director of Sales and Services at Xylem Americas Service. “Smart water management solutions – designed to meet the needs of specific applications – reduce operating costs while improving performance, safety, and the environmental impact of a mine. We start by partnering closely with our customers to get to the root of their challenge. Then, we tap into our broad portfolio and expertise across the water cycle to deliver solutions that directly address their needs and support the long-term prosperity of their operation.”

Also at AGG1 2024:

  • Xylem leader Ken Albaugh delivered a presentation on Smart Mine Water Management, including best-practice strategies and examples from the company’s global aggregates customer.
  • A range of Xylem’s total mine water management solutions, including a Goulds Water Technology e-SV pump, Flygt 2610 and Flygt 2201 submersible drainage pumps, and a 3D model of a Goulds Water Technology turbine, were on display at the company’s booth.
  • All were welcomed to the Xylem-sponsored Rock & Road Reception
