Leading global water technology company, Xylem, will unveil its Godwin FP Dri-Prime Flood Protection Series at the Singapore International Water Week (SIWW) from July 8-12. This latest innovation from Xylem’s renowned Godwin brand is the first set of high flow, portable pumps certified to handle the world’s toughest dewatering challenge: flood protection. Specifically designed for the removal of destructive floodwaters, the Godwin FP Series is the first set of high flow, portable flood mitigation pumps to earn the seal of approval from FM Global, the largest private insurer of commercial and industrial properties in the world.
The new Godwin FP Series extends Xylem’s portfolio of resilience-building technologies, built to help communities prepare for, respond to and recover from natural disasters like extreme flooding. As one of the most vulnerable regions to climate change, cities across Asia, from Mumbai to Jakarta, are increasingly exposed to unpredictable weather patterns. Globally, FM Global report that annual losses due to flooding costs companies US$2-3 billion worldwide and this figure is expected to rise — endangering property, livelihoods and the environment. FM certified flood mitigation pumps have been rigorously tested for their ability to efficiently and reliably remove water.
Dave Flinton, Xylem senior vice president and president of its Dewatering business, said, “Floods can be devastating for businesses, often disrupting operations for extended periods of time. Having systems and solutions in place to ensure resilience to this growing threat is critical. The Godwin FP Dri-Prime Series is the latest in our resilience-building product portfolio. Compliant with the most rigorous certification standards in the world, it can be relied upon to handle the toughest dewatering challenge when flood waters threaten.”
The wide range of the Godwin FP Series — which includes the FP100, the FP150, the FP225, and the FP300 — enables rapid dewatering of any flood protection challenge. The portable Godwin Flood Protection Series offers optional Field Smart Technology – the first-in-industry telemetry and wireless technology that provides smart remote monitoring and control of the pump from any smartphone, tablet or desktop computer.
Kevin Snow, Godwin global product manager for Xylem, said, “Building on Godwin’s renowned reliability, the FP Dri-Prime Series offers flow rates up to 1,100 cubic meters per hour. Optional Field Smart Technology allows remote monitoring and control from anywhere in the world, so when hazardous conditions make it challenging to reach your pump, you’ll still have full visibility and control of the situation. It’s tough, smart and versatile and can be the most effective tool in your flood mitigation efforts.”
The pumps available in the Godwin FP Dri-Prime Series also come equipped with the exclusive Godwin liquid bath mechanical seal to enable extended dry-running, helping to reduce over-all maintenance costs. The powerful flood mitigation series is further strengthened by the portability of the pumps, allowing for rapid deployment in the most hazardous conditions during emergency situations.
The Godwin FP Dri-Prime Series will be launched by Dave Flinton at Xylem’s SIWW exhibition space at the Marina Bay Sands Expo & Convention Center on Monday, July 9 at 3:30pm SGT (B2-F20, Basement 2). All are invited to attend. Demonstrations of the FP Series will also be available throughout the week.
The Godwin FP Dri-Prime Series is supported by Xylem’s strong local presence across Asia, with its regional headquarters in Singapore and teams in Malaysia, the Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam and Indonesia, and a comprehensive network of distributors to meet customer needs.
