The Pump Industry Awards recognizes companies that have demonstrated excellence in the design and implementation of fluid flow technology. The Pump Industry Awards is now recognized as one of the leading award ceremonies within the industrial arena. Founded by the British Pump Manufacturers Association (BPMA) in 2000, the awards program celebrates the achievements of pump companies and individuals who strive to go the extra mile.

The winning project was an energy upgrade carried out by Armstrong Fluid Technology for the National Grid. The priorities for National Grid’s three-story commercial office block in Solihull, England included the need to reduce energy costs and improve environmental performance. The pumps to be replaced were Holden and Brooke (Armstrong legacy) models manufactured in 2002, ranging in size from 7.5kW to 37kW. The Armstrong Design Envelope replacements (fully integrated pumping modules capable of parallel pumping) delivered a 70% reduction in annual energy usage, saving £22,400 per annum in energy costs, and representing an annual reduction in carbon emissions of 57,432 kg of CO2.

Other outstanding aspects of the project included fast and efficient installation (over a single weekend to avoid disruption for site occupants), real-time 24/7 remote monitoring for optimization of performance throughout the life of the equipment, and the recycling of 3.5 tons of material from the legacy pumps removed during the upgrade.

Stephen Hart, Sales Director – UK, who accepted the award on behalf of Armstrong Fluid Technology said, "We are extremely proud to receive the Project of the Year award. Enormous improvements in the environmental performance of buildings are possible with the latest generation of fluid flow solutions. We are committed to help our customers meet their sustainability targets as well as save energy. The BPMA awards are so important, because they celebrate the highest achievements in design and implementation of pump technology and highlight the important role our industry plays in a sustainable future."
