A successful energy audit for SPP Pumps in Egypt SPP Pumps MENA LLC has been highly successful in securing orders for its value-added products and services. Recently, the company responded to an important order from Lehaa Group, a private agricultural sectorinvestor, when it completed an energy audit on the irrigation pumping equipment at the Lehaa’s farm at Toshka in Egypt. There were a number of significant challenges, especially with respect to the intake pumping system, because of the complexity of the site. However, SPP MENA conducted an extensive energy audit of the existing system. The data obtained from the audit was compiled and analysed - and then energy-eﬃcient pumping solutions were recommended by SPP MENA. The detailed presentation, given to the Lehaa’s management, was appreciated. The customer was happy to see a significant reduction in energy expenditure once the new system, recommended by SPP MENA, was implemented.
