To operate in a more sustainable and environmentally friendly way, operators are reviewing all their equipment. One vital piece of equipment that can go a long way towards positively contributing to improved sustainability are dewatering pumps. Various factors should be considered, such as reducing downtime, improving serviceability, reducing emissions, legislation, and ensuring the pump is properly sized to operate most efficiently.
