Grundfos Pump Replacement Saves Energy Costs & Time at UK Wastewater Plant

Quick pump replacement saves massive costs and time at UK wastewater plant

A Wessex Water location in Dorset recently saved valuable time, money, stress and energy when Grundfos was used to deliver a pump solution in a breakdown situation.

In this instance, the pump failure had the potential to have very serious consequences when a problem with a wastewater pump meant that a non-standard pump needed to be replaced very quickly. Any disruption to the plant’s operations had many consequences including the high costs associated with over-pumping, while waiting on a new pump to be delivered, something that had the potential to cause a month’s disruption to Wessex Water.

However, they contacted Grundfos who understood the urgency and could deliver a pump replacement in just 4 days. This meant they were up and running in just a fraction of the expected time and the added benefit of simple installation meant that the plant was running smoothly again. As well as reliable products and exemplar service, the plant savings in over-pumping financed the replacement pumps, resulting in financial and energy savings.

A Wessex Water spokesperson explained "Grundfos are keen to make sure that our service level agreements are met, and keen that we get the service we really need."
