Giving Thanks for Water Innovation

Thanksgiving is a time for families to give thanks and share a delicious meal. The Hitachi water pump innovations at Edmonston Pumping Plant in California help provide the trillions of gallons of water farmers need to produce food that millions of Americans enjoy - from turkey to potatoes to pumpkins. By using Computational Fluid Dynamics and an 80,000 horsepower synchronous motor to increase efficiency, Hitachi water pumps help growers produce food more sustainably, so that next Thanksgiving there will be even more to be grateful for.
