Mumbai: Kirloskar Brothers Limited (KBL), one of India's largest manufacturers and exporters of Pumps, had launched it's 'Oldest Pump Contest', on 11th October 2010 to commemorate the centenary year of Kirloskarvadi manufacturing plant.

The company received more than 200 entries qualifying the terms and conditions of the contest. The award function is scheduled to be held by end April or early May,2011.

After detailed scrutiny and verification of the entries received, the panel of experts adjudged the winners - SAIL (Steel Authority of India Limited), Durgapur (West Bengal) [Year of Installation - 1960] and West Coast Paper Mills Limited, Dandeli (Karnataka) [Year of Installation- 1965]. Both these pumps are UP models, the most popular Horizontal Split Case Pumps manufactured in the Kirloskarvadi plant.

In addition to this, the panel has also declared a special award for the "UP pump" working at Cochin Port Trust since 1950. This entry could not comply with certain terms of the contest and hence was considered as a special case.
