Grundfos Philippines has launched its Prefabricated Pumping Stations (PPS) to help meet the country’s growing flood and wastewater management needs.
With the growth of the economy and rapid urbanisation in the Philippines, the country is facing significant challenges in terms of water and sanitation. Around seven million rely on unsafe and unsustainable water sources and 24 million lack access to improved sanitation. As the government of Philippines has geared up to address the issues of universal water and sanitation services coverage by 2028, reliable and intelligent technology will play a critical role in enabling this transformation. The PPS is a sustainable turn-key solution that reduces both installation time, commissioning costs and the space requirement substantially.
The PPS is designed to be energy efficient and operate reliably in the long run. Traditional pumping stations are made of concrete casted on-site, which means that it is susceptible to corrosion and leakage over time. With PPS being made of hard-wearing plastic, its greater durability paired with an advanced control system means optimised operations, and in turn greater energy savings.
In addition to flood control, another key application for PPS is in wastewater management. Playing a key role in the wastewater management process, pumping stations are designed to collect and transport wastewater, and PPS’ high durability ensures minimal disruption to any water system. This solution can play a key role in urban as well as remote areas and create a reliable decentralised wastewater management system.
“The PPS also only requires a short construction timeframe. Compared to traditional pumping stations, PPS is produced in the Grundfos factory and sent to the site as a complete package, making installation easier and usually completed within 24 hours. This reduces installation time by as much as 80 percent, ensuring minimal disruption to people and infrastructure. With the lockdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the PPS solution will significantly help complete the installation faster and avoid potential additional costs and delays,” said Jonathan Breton, General Manager, Grundfos Philippines.
