Siemens and Grundfos sign digital partnership to tackle global water challenges and save energy

09 Oct 2019 by Grundfos

  • Partnership based on complementary portfolios and competences will support our customers when implementing intelligent solutions
  • Cooperation to tackle global water challenges: increase energy efficiency and reduce water consumption
  • Focused on three main areas: water and wastewater applications, industrial automation and building technology

Siemens and Grundfos have signed a digital partnership framework for strategic cooperation between the two companies. The new partnership focuses on the complementary products and solutions provided by both parties in three main areas: water and wastewater applications, industrial automation and building technology.

By combining their complementary expertise and knowledge in a long-term co-development digital partnership, both Siemens and Grundfos will benefit customers by creating synergies that extend beyond the sum of their parts. Both parties are entering into this partnership with the aim of achieving sustainable global change by joining forces in digital solutions.

“We are delighted to be further extending our collaboration with Grundfos,” states Klaus Helmrich, Member of the Managing Board of Siemens AG and CEO of Digital Industries. “Siemens and Grundfos are combining the competences of both companies in order to support our joint customer base in their digital transformation and in the implementation of intelligent solutions. Solutions from our Digital Enterprise portfolio can be used, for example, to increase the uptime of pumps and motors and to optimize their operation. Our MindSphere open cloud-based IoT operating system combined with Grundfos IoT solutions can optimize pump and motor schedules in order to maximize uptime and minimize energy consumption.”

In addition, MindSphere can be used to acquire data and knowledge, which enables us to operate buildings in a more user-friendly and efficient way.

“Our purpose is to pioneer solutions that contribute to solving the world’s water and climate challenges. To live up to that purpose, we are on a major digital transformation journey to supplement our pump solutions business by also becoming a digital solution and service provider. Partnering with Siemens is a big step in this direction,” says Mads Nipper, CEO, Grundfos. He adds: “Our companies have a strong position based on quality offerings and we want to strengthen this position by adding a digital layer. Ten percent of all electric energy in the world is used by pumps. Through this partnership we can provide intelligent, efficient solutions for reducing energy consumption, making a substantial difference when it comes to combatting climate change.”

Siemens and Grundfos pledge to lead the way on global sustainability and share the aim of making a positive impact on Sustainable Development Goals 6 (Clean water and sanitation) and 13 (Climate action).

By 2030, Grundfos aspires to be Climate Positive, and the company aims to halve its own water consumption by 2025. By 2030, Grundfos will have contributed to providing safely managed drinking water to 300 million people in need. In addition, through water efficiency and water treatment, the company will have saved 50 billion cubic meters of fresh water.

Grundfos
Philippines
Grundfos started to introduce solutions to sourcing groundwater and water distribution in the Philippines thru an exclusive distributor in Manila. Since 1987, SP deep well submersible pumps and CRN vertical multi-stage inline pumps were made available locally for water works, water treatment, and boiler feeding.  BP vertical pumps were eventually introduced for irrigation in the rural areas in the Visayas and Mindanao regions.As the local culture tended to focus on pricing, the cheaper brand always had the upperhand . The challenge then was to redefine how the market should choose pumps for optimum long term performance. Eventually, companies that invested on Grundfos pumps began to realize the value of reliability and sustainability as they benefit with greater production and less down time.In 1984, a regional office was established in Singapore to actively campaign for booster systems in the Asia Pacific market. This prompted the regional office to open a representative office in the Philippines in June 1995.In January 2004, Grundfos Pumps Philippines was incorporated, with annual sales revenue hitting a remarkable PHP 132 million by the end of the year.To meet the growing demands of the market, a branch office was opened in 2010 in Davao, to cater to the Mindanao area. Grundfos Philippines developed a representative based in Cebu to manage sales in the Visayas region, and a network of authorized dealers to serve customers nationwide.In 2011, Grundfos Philippines gained the Grundfos Sales Company status as it became a global entity under the Grundfos Holdings in Denmark.The Sales and Marketing teams are committed to create long-term and good relationship with customers by providing them with professional recommendations and relevant technology updates.Through constant training and development, the team along with Grundfos authorized dealers are equipped with up to date product knowledge in order to effectively offer solutions to customer requirements.Grundfos Philippines maintains brand visibility by joining trade exhibitions, and orginizing seminars to get closer to customers.The Service team is composed of committed and skilled technicians to provide uncompromising quality after-sales service.From proper installation and commissioning; to maintenance, optimisation and contingent replacement of spare parts and pumps, the Service team and its network of professional partners are available for worry-free and reliable pumps operations.The Logistics team is in-charge of the timely delivery of orders to customers.
