Grundfos showcases digitalised sustainable tech at Big 5

Kostas PoulopoulosDenmark’s water solutions and pumps company Grundfos demonstrated how sustainability and technology are totally compatible at this month’s Big 5 exhibition at the Dubai World Trade Centre from 25-28 November

The company highlighted a range of projects which are benefiting from its digital-driven iSolutions technology which delivers higher reliability, energy efficiency, enables remote management and can shave up to 80 per cent off energy costs for commercial and residential buildings.

Grundfos’ digital-driven solutions have been installed in many commercial building projects across the region, including Royal Atlantis and One Zabeel. For domestic application, its smart water solutions have been selected for over 7,000 villas across the UAE. Grundfos’s SCALA2 pump is also used at the SEWA (Sharjah Electricity & Water Authority) head office, where it replaced older units, generated energy savings of 80 per cent annually with a payback of 1.3 years.

Grundfos iSolutions technology has been designed with the future and sustainability in mind and is part of the company’s goal of helping the world achieve the UN sustainable development goals and C40’s drive to the future we want.

“In the UAE, we are contributing to attaining its sustainability targets one project at a time,” explained Poulopoulos. “At Big 5, visitors will leave with greater insights into how they too can benefit through heightened reliability and cost control.”

Grundfos’ area managing director Kostas Poulopoulos called for a collective effort from the public and private sector to attain sustainability goals by leveraging the latest technology.

“Sustainability doesn’t mean that we stop progress in its tracks but rather use technology to our advantage. Digitalisation, for example, offers new ways to achieve sustainability.”

As a sustainability provider, Grundfos focuses on innovating and campaigning for more sustainable solutions calling for all sections of society to participate in drafting development blueprints.

“Sustainable engineering is gaining popularity and traction more than ever especially in developed and urbanised countries, but more can be done in terms of ground reality and execution,” added Poulopoulos.

Ras Al Khaimah (RAK) Municipality signed an MoU with Grundfos for an expansive audit of its HVAC, irrigation, water supply and water disinfection pumping systems across 50 of its buildings and operational facilities, including large-scale sewage plants.
