At the heart of a community-heating scheme in Dundee are five Grundfos pumps.

The energy centre for the district-heating scheme that is part of the refurbishment of the Dallfield community energy-saving project in Dundee includes five Grundfos TPED Series 1000 circulator pumps. The scheme was expected to deliver 30% energy savings, but residents have reported reductions in their fuel bills of as much as 50%.

The area comprises four multi-storey buildings providing 336 homes.

Dundee City Council appointed McGill as principal contractor, which selected various partners, including Grundfos. The project has won two awards for the excellent results it has achieved.
