A pumping good meeting
Pumps currently consume 10% of the world’s electrical power, so focusing on optimising the amount of energy they use makes a lot of sense both from an environmental perspective as well as to save energy.
All pumped up about 2017
At first glance, there may not appear to be many similarities between Edinburgh University, Wimbledon, the Bloomberg HQ and the Queensferry Crossing. However, there is one thing that links them and that is the fact that they have all been recipients of Grundfos pumps in 2017..
All pumped up about London
It may not be that obvious what the Tate Modern, The Shard, Wimbledon, the Walkie Talkie Building, Lords, Francis Crick Institute, Royal London, the Supreme Court, ArcelorMittal Orbit and the O2 have in common? There are some more obvious connections, they are all iconic buildings in London, most are pretty well known and some have even played their part in changing the London skyline.
Battersea makes a powerful start with Grundfos
Battersea Power Station has rarely been out of the headlines since it was initially proposed back in 1927. These decommissioned coal-fired power stations with their four iconic chimneys and art deco interiors have become even more famous as a London landmark since they ceased operating in 1983.
Belmarsh sets new standards
Belmarsh is a well-known Category A men’s prison in London that first opened in 1991 with a capacity for 910 inmates. Since then it has suffered from increasing overcrowding problems that were exacerbated by the diversity of the prisons’ population. The decision was therefore made to provide a new Category B facility at Belmarsh under a £415m PFI contract with Serco Group, acting as the consortium partner and with Skanska winning the £100m contract for the design and build of the new facility.
Bloomberg delivers a breath of fresh air
Sympathetically designed, the new Bloomberg HQ it is situated on a 3.2-acre prominent site in the heart of the City of London. It provides 1.1 million sq. ft. of sustainable office, public and retail space as well an innovative museum experience.
Bolshoi Theatre gets a complete re-fit
The Bolshoi company was formed back in 1776 and the current, now world famous theatre in Moscow opened its doors in 1856. The name Bolshoi is Russian for ‘large’ or ‘grand’ and these imperial properties were intended purely for the high arts of opera and ballet.
Brewery laps up energy savings
When a well-known name in the brewery industry in the UK approached Grundfos Pumps to undertake an Energy Check on a part of their operation, they were sure they could help to deliver real savings. This is because Grundfos have been at the forefront of energy optimised pump development for years and take real pride in their achievements and their approach to sustainability.
