Grundfos seminars hit Saudi

Grundfos has rounded off its 2017 seminar programme with three further events in key Saudi cities, as part of its campaign to bring ‘intelligent’ water handling to commercial buildings and wastewater networks throughout the Middle East.

Under the title ‘Discover Intelligent Connectivity’ the three seminars were designed to explain how the latest Grundfos iSolutions ensure better performance, improved control and much higher levels of energy efficiency, whether the pumping system in question is driving water or waste supply in a school, commercial building or waste water treatment plant.

Starting on 4th December at Movenpick Al Khobar, the Grundfos team moved on to Riyadh and then Jeddah for the final event, attracting capacity invited audiences of leading engineers at each of the three venues.

The seminars followed a similar format, with an initial introduction and welcome, after which guests were shown a movie reinforcing Grundfos’ focus on innovation, and outlining its world-leading operations, which now employ more than 18,500 people in 56 countries across the globe.

Visitors were then given an overview of Grundfos’ full range of pumps, drives and solutions, before a detailed introduction to the latest generation of iSolutions, which bring together pumps, drives, controls and protection with communication units and sensors, to create a holistic pumping solution that can communicate and automatically adapt to precisely meet system demands.

The events ended with lunch, during which visitors were able to discuss specific applications with Grundfos sales and technical experts, and exchange information with their opposite numbers from the range of different industries represented.

The seminars follow a number of similar events hosted by Grundfos over the past three months throughout Turkey and Egypt, and are part of an extensive campaign designed to highlight the unacceptably high cost of breakdowns, maintenance and wasted energy currently being experienced throughout commercial buildings and the water handling sector, due to old and inefficient pumping systems.
