Lowara goes to the Olympics


Energy-Saving Pumps Meet Olympic Goal of "Green Games"

Pumps for a Green Village Lowara has an important presence in this year's Olympics, to be held in Sidney, Australia from September 15 to October 1, 2000.

One facility that will have a life after the games is the Olympic Village.

During the Games, athletes will be housed in the solar-powered Olympic Village which is itself part of the largest solar-powered suburb in the world.

The Village is planned to accommodate 10,305 competitors and 5100 delegation officials at the time of the Olympic Games, and to form a new residential community afterwards. During the Games, the Village will contain 1150 permanent dwellings and specially designed modula houses.

Many advanced environmental features have been incorporated into the design of the Village, including extensive use of solar power. In the Olympic Village, Hydrovar-equipped Lowara pumps from ITT Industries? Lowara unit fit right into this "green scheme." These pumps are being installed to provide watservice to the village.

A primary reason that the Hydrovar-equipped pumps were chosen is the energy savings to be realized from a "smart" variable speed pumping system. As compared with conventional pumps which run at a fixed speed, the Hydrovar-equipped pumps are demand driven. When the Olympic Village is filled to capacity and demand for water will be high, Hydrovar will provide supply according to that demand.
