NEW DELHI: The state of Baja, Mexico, is set to get a brand new pump barreled concrete pump as part of a $100m expansion plan, officials said.
The $90 million plan will see a total of 12 new pumping stations in Baja and surrounding areas, which will add capacity to the local infrastructure, officials with the state government said in a statement.
The first pump bar, the Soylent Pump Bar in Quezon City, will have three pumps and three pumps, with the second and third pumps to be located in Las Chuchales, Cabrera, San Luis and Quezon city.
The third pump will be built in Bataan, which is in Quezantas state.
The new stations will be in Cabrera and San Luis.
The Baja Pump Bar will be the first of two in Banaan.
The first is in Cabrero and San Sebastian, and will be an 8,500-tonne (4,300-kilogram) pump bar which will operate for a year.
Caboera and San Sebastián have the largest capacity of any existing pumping stations.
The second station, Las Chapales, will be a 1,000-tonnes (800-kilograms) pump with four pumps and two pumps in Cabranes.
Las Cancans will be another 8,000 tonnes (4.3 million tons) capacity, according to the statement.
The final station will be located in Quezon.
Construction of the new stations is expected to be completed by 2020.

Baja will become the second city in the world to be added to the list of approved pumping stations after Shanghai.
Hong Kong added a pump bar to its infrastructure in 2014.
