ITT awarded $22 million Indian contract
ITT Corp., a White Plains-based maker of water treatment systems, said that it has been awarded a $22 million contract to provide water pumps for two major irrigation systems in India.
The project, in the Andhra Pradesh region of India, will irrigate more than 250,000 acres of farmland. ITT will also supervise the installation of the systems. The expected delivery date is late 2010.
“Andhra Pradesh is known as the ‘Rice Bowl of India’ and these projects enable us to make a vital contribution by bringing water where it is needed and growing Indian agricultural production,” said Sam Yamdagni, managing director of ITT India.
For more than a decade, ITT has been a supplier of water and industrial pumps in India. The company also supplies shock absorbers for Indian Railways and components used in India’s space program, including the country’s first moon mission.
