Burj Khalifa: A Towering Achievment

05.02.2010

The recent official opening of the world’ tallest structure, nicknamed The Superscraper, in Dubai made headline news all around the world. Built at a cost of $1.5 billion, the final height of Burj Khalifa (former known as Burj Dubai) that was only announced at the official opening, is a mind boggling 828m (2,716 ft).

Delivering on such an unprecedented project was a major logistical challenge to everyone involved in the supply chain and Grundfos Pumps, GGD, were delighted to be part of the solution.

The new structure is home to a 160-room hotel (designed by Giorgio Armani), a range of businesses and retail outlets as well as over 1,000 luxury apartments. All of these facilities require clean water to be delivered to, as well as dirty water to be removed from, what is to all intents and purposes a vertical city. Playing this role are a small army of 82 x Grundfos SENV submersible pumps, 27 x AP pumps submersible drainage and effluent pumps suitable for a wide range of such applications. These pumps were supplied in conjunction with 68 explosion proof control panels.

Ensuring the delivery of hot/cold water is an important priority and the Grundfos range were once again recognised as offering the ideal solution and supplied 42 x CRN stainless steel multistage centrifugal pumps and 3 x Hydro MPC booster sets that will ensure that water will be delivered to where it is required, when it is required.
