Xylem celebrates milestone of 5 million Flygt pumps produced

Intelligent pumping technologies enable water operators to increase network resilience and sustainability.

Xylem has marked five million Flygt pumps produced, continuing its efforts in breakthrough water technology innovations. The Flygt Concertor wastewater pumping system with integrated digital intelligence was the five millionth pump to roll off the production line and will serve the UK-based water utility, Scottish Water.

The Concertor, which delivers energy savings of up to 70% compared to a conventional pumping system, is among the technologies that will support Scottish Water’s commitment to achieving net-zero emissions by 2040.

Hayati Yarkadas, president of water infrastructure for Xylem, commented: “Water utilities are continuously working to raise the bar for their communities by increasing their infrastructure’s efficiency, sustainability, and affordability. For more than a century, we’ve collaborated with customers around the world to advance Flygt technologies that help address their biggest water challenges.

“Today’s innovations include applying data analytics and decision intelligence to optimise water networks. These high-efficiency technologies also help utilities dramatically reduce energy-related greenhouse gas emissions.”

Xylem’s Flygt solutions have been deployed worldwide, driving operational and environmental gains for its customers and their communities, including Scottish Water, Heathrow Airport and a wastewater utility in Michigan.

Xylem’s five millionth Flygt pump rolled off the production line at its Swedish manufacturing plant, which is on track to recycle process water by 2023.
