When it comes to supplying innovative pump solutions to iconic buildings and major sports events around the world, Grundfos has an impressive track record. This summer, when the world's greatest football event kicks off in Brazil, a staggering 70% of all pump solutions installed at the 12 arenas hosting the tournament will be from Grundfos.
From renovated classic stadiums to entirely new constructions, from the Atlantic seaboard to the Amazon rainforest, Grundfos pumps are handling everything from pitch irrigation and air-conditioning to pressure boosting and fire-fighting. Grundfos provides reliable and energy-efficient solutions that will contribute to making the event memorable for players and spectators alike.
"When designing the systems, my priorities were to get a stable pressure and flowrate, to choose energy efficiency and to find a solution, which would work in constrained space. Grundfos’ boosters lived up to all criteria, so I kept them in mind," says Paulo Jorge Salomão Jr, engineer and designer at the engineering consulting company Sondotécnica, who worked on the Maracanã.
The reliable and energy-efficient choice
"When the eyes of the world turn to Brazil for the championships, it is absolutely essential that everything runs smoothly," says Group Executive Vice President Søren Ø. Sørensen.
"Our customers in Brazil know our high-quality solutions from experience or from our positive reputation in the industry. Combined with the expert assistance we offer, choosing Grundfos is often considered the safe choice."
Apart from proven reliability, the Grundfos solutions deliver world-class energy efficiency, delivering top-notch performance while using a minimum of electricity and water. With energy efficiency prominent on the agenda on several of the stadium projects, the Grundfos solutions not only fulfil all technical requirements but do so with minimal environmental impact.
"We are proud to play a part at this event and are confident that our pump solutions will put in a world-class performance to match that of the players on the pitch," concludes Søren Ø. Sørensen.
