Xylem Inc. (XYL:US), the water company whose pumps helped clean tunnels flooded by Hurricane Sandy, has been awarded a contract from Beijing Drainage Group, a state-owned wastewater utility.
Xylem will install 19 pumping stations in downtown Beijing as part of the $2.9 million contract, according to a statement from the White Plains, New York-based company. The pumps will improve water storage capability and prevent overflows by providing more efficient drainage and flood control, according to yesterday’s statement from the former ITT Corp. unit.
