The author of the agreement with SGS is Service Director, Ralf Siekmann, Grundfos Germany. He is also the author of the idea of a computer program used in connection with the agreement with SGS.
The program allows the customers to use Grundfos’ expertise and know-how for creating a complete survey of their pump installations. For instance it may point out the pumps that, from a life-cycle perspective, would be suitable for being replaced by new and more energy efficient pumps.
”With this program, an installation with 70 pumps may be tested in only two hours,” Mr Siekmann explained.
In addition to the survey of the life-cycle costs of the pumps, the customers will get a report of possible investments and payback times as well as possible energy and CO2 savings.
The system can point out the pumps that, from a life-cycle point of view, would be suitable for being replaced by new and more efficient pumps
