Grundfos Water Utility seminars get under way
Market leading pump manufacturer, Grundfos, has kicked off its training programme for the Water Utilities sector with a series of seminars designed to usher-in a new era of ‘intelligent’ water handling and distribution throughout the wider Middle East.
Turkey and Egypt have been the first to benefit, with the first four seminars completed during October. Following the success of these, the company has now completed further seminars in Saudi.
Part of a wider campaign designed to move the market away from the predominantly inefficient and often outdated pumping systems that are currently holding back efforts to reduce usage and wastage of the region’s dwindling water supplies, the seminars are designed to move the industry towards Grundfos’ latest generation of ‘intelligent’ pumping solutions.
Seminar attendees are introduced to new generation systems that use state-of-the-art pumping technology and intelligence to bring every element of the pumping system together into a single, centrally-controlled autonomous unit. Everything from the pumps to the associated drives, controls and protection systems, and even measurement and communication units, thus operate as a single unit, reacting automatically to changes in pressure and demand to maintain optimum efficiency at all times, as well as cutting energy use and reducing system maintenance requirements.
The new ‘intelligent’ systems have the potential to transform virtually every pumping application, from water intake, treatment and distribution through to waste water handling and treatment – reducing waste and improving efficiency across the board.
The current seminar programme is aimed at engineers and process managers from all parts of the Middle East Water Utilities sector. It is part of an extensive campaign that has already seen Grundfos exhibiting at two of the region’s leading water industry events – WETEX, Dubai and WATEX, Iran, during October, in order to spread the message about ‘Intelligent’ pumping technology to the widest possible audience of top contractors and specifiers, as well as NGO’s and Government representatives.
