Submission + - The World's Largest Water Pump in New Orleans (everythingnew.net)

hasanabbas1987 writes: "When nature strikes, man always look for alternatives to fight back, failing on most occasions though. This time when nature showed its anger in the Mississippi River, man again decided to act, this time they have decided to build the world’s largest water pump in New Orleans. This monster pump is powered by a 5,000 horsepower diesel engine which moves a giant four blade propeller 150 times in a minute. As a result 150,000 gallons of water is moved every second (15 Olympic size swimming pools every minute)."
