Tsurumi’s submersible pumps were hard at work in creating currents for Japan’s first artificial canoe slalom course and warm-up course.
Located next to Kasai Rinkai Park, the facility employs the largest class of submersible pumps that Tsurumi has installed in the country.
This webpage introduces these pumps from how they were manufactured,
transported to the site and installed to how they were being used to create currents for the competition course and warm-up course.
Standing 5.4 m tall and weighing about 10 t, these gigantic submersible pumps created the challenging current needed for competitions by discharging 240 m³ of water per minute. That is enough capacity to fill a 25 m swimming pool in about 1 minute.
A total of 15 of these pumps were employed to generate and maintain the steady current of the warm-up course.
Tsurumi became an official sponsor of the Japan Canoe Federation after inking an agreement on July 1, 2018.
Besides providing a push to competitive canoeing, the Japan Canoe Federation promotes canoeing as a life-long sport that improves health and fosters a healthy body and mind, and is behind activities that make canoe sports accessible to all, because of its water environment conservation policy through which it promotes the beauty of the natural environment and its clean water campaign.
As a company that prides itself on “Being water- and people-friendly”, Tsurumi is happy to support efforts to promote canoe sports.
