The largest wastewater pumps in Grundfos’ history will take almost an entire year to manufacture and deliver.
Grundfos in Saudi Arabia recently landed an order for the largest wastewater pumps in Grundfos’ history. 4 x 3000 HP (2200kW) pumps were chosen as part of a €2.9m big strategic pumping station project by Dammam Municipality in the Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia.
Senior Sales Manager of Water Utility, Luay Al Toussi explained that Grundfos first heard about this project at the very early concept design stage and were asked by Dammam Municipality to support the design as well as offer guidance and assistance.
- Working very closely with the main consultant SAUDICONSULT we used our local relationships and our local and international technical skills and competence to gain a major advantage over the competitors, Mr Al Toussi explained.
When it came to the offer/quotation stage, Grundfos were in a very positive position because of the deep involvement in the entire process.
- This is a great example of how a local and global team can work together to deliver outstanding results, said Mr Al Toussi.
