A centrifugal pump is used to pump water (density $1000$ $kg/m^{3}$) from an inlet pressure of $10^{5}$ $Pa$ to an exit pressure of $2 \times 10^{5}$ $Pa$. The exit is at an elevation of $10$ $m$ above the pump. The average velocity of the fluid is $10\: m/s$. The cross-sectional area of the pipes at the pump inlet and outlet is $10^{-3}$ $m^{2}$ and acceleration due to gravity is $g=10$ $m/s^{2}$. Neglecting losses in the system, the power (in Watts) delivered by the pump is __________ (rounded off to the nearest integer).
