Grundfos harnessing the energy at Glastonbury
When a veritable army of enthusiasts descend on the mystical Vale of Avalon, they are there to experience what has become a music and aesthetic phenomenon that is just synonymous with Glastonbury.
Conscious of their role in creating as little extra stress to the environment as possible, the organisers are consistently looking for ways to use less resources, to run the festival.
This year, by working with Grundfos Pumps, more savings have been found through a combination of switching pumps motors to more efficient variable speed control models, adding a new precision dosing system that will save on chemical use as well as investing in an overarching remote monitoring system will not only give extra control, but also the ability to interrogate and assess operational data.
The festival might now be getting close to its 50th birthday, but it certainly isn’t showing any signs of slowing down and its enthusiasm to continue to improve, is still as strong as ever.
