DPP_2518

The pump house at Marina Barrage contains seven drainage pumps, which were the largest at the time of construction. This also makes the pump house one of the largest pumping facility in the world. The pumps, each weighing 28 tonnes, assist in flood control by pumping water out from the reservoir into the sea in the event of heavy rains and high tide.
