Pump specialist to help companies lower their energy footprint
Grundfos has introduced its energy check services for pump systems to the UAE market, allowing business owners to achieve up to 60% savings in pump energy costs.
The checks provided will help organisations manage energy use as buildings rely on pumps to circulate water.
“Our energy checks are essential to organisations opting to both save energy and improve their environmental imprint,” said Tolga Candan, Grundfos business development manager, Energy Opt & Retrofit.
“In a case study on a milk processing plant in Turkey, our energy checks have led to solutions that elevated energy savings to an astonishing amount of AED 700,000 annually, allowing pay back of the original investment cost in just 2 months.”
He added: “Our specialist teams in Grundfos will conduct simple inspections of pump installations to calculate potential savings and make suggestions for high performing energy efficient solutions.
“Most importantly these inspections are fast, easy and free, and don’t require down time on the pump systems, which means that there wouldn’t be any interruption in services while executing these inspections.”
The findings of the inspection teams of Grundfos will be included in a free energy check report detailing the current pump installation and operation, and potential upgrades, savings and payback times.
In another case of a Sheraton 5-star hotel in central Dubai, the estimated energy saving reached up to 210,240 kWh/year (48%); in a Headquarters office building case, the energy savings reached up to (42%); and in the case of a water pumping station in the UAE, the total energy savings reached up to 876,000 kWh/year (24%).
Grundfos says an energy check of pumps provides a solid foundation for saving 30-50% of pumps operational costs.
“In addition to the amount of savings achieved; the benefits of our energy check services have also led to reduced maintenance costs; improved process efficiency; improved system efficiency; short ROIs; and operational problems overcome, leading to better and more efficient performance, and to enhanced environmental footprint,” Candan said.
