Singapore – On 21st January 2020, Grundfos, a global leader in advanced pump solutions, launched a new digital lab at its regional headquarters at 25 Jalan Tukang in Singapore. The lab, the first of its kind by Grundfos in Asia Pacific, is a strategic initiative to drive greater adoption of intelligent water solutions in the region.
The lab showcases Grundfos’ range of iSOLUTIONS products, which leverage intelligent technology to deliver optimal performance, greater energy efficiency and reliability. These products are used for a wide range of applications across sectors – from water distribution and wastewater treatment by water utilities, pressure boosting and heating, ventilation and air-conditioning in commercial buildings, to industrial applications such as washing, cleaning and industrial cooling.
Key solutions on showcase in the lab include the Grundfos SMART Digital XL DDA and DDE dosing pumps, which enable accurate chemical dosage across numerous production processes including drinking water, wastewater treatment and industrial processing, reducing chemical consumption by 5 to 19 percent. The lab also demonstrates the Grundfos Remote Management – a secure, internet-based system, which intelligently monitors and manages water flows in pump installations through the interconnectivity of pumps, sensors and meters.
Kim Jensen, Regional Managing Director of Grundfos Asia Pacific region, said that establishing a dedicated lab in the region is a demonstration of the company’s confidence in Asia Pacific’s digitalisation potential, as well as recognition of Singapore as the hub for this digital transformation, thanks to its Smart Nation ambitions.
Through the lab, Grundfos seeks to demonstrate the value of intelligent pump solutions, with the aim of driving greater uptake among its wide customer base, which range from utilities and government agencies to property owners and major industries.
Kim Jensen said: “Pumps do not exist in isolation. We believe that the key to maximum efficiency is optimising the entire pump system, and not only the pumps. The iSOLUTIONS range aims to optimise energy and water efficiency across the entire system by leveraging connectivity, intelligent monitoring and commissioning wizards. Through our iSOLUTIONS portfolio, we have successfully delivered significant energy savings for our customers, whilst at the same time driving significant cost savings with optimised performance.”
