We're pump energy experts

A bit more about us, our history and your chance to meet the team

We have a long track record delivering highly innovative technology

Looking ahead, we’re committed to working with the best project delivery partners in each part of the world and focused on achieving great results for our customers. We plan to continue serving industry while achieving significant growth over the coming years.

Today we employ a vast range of competencies

Our team of pump energy experts includes highly skilled hydraulic engineers, software developers, engineering consultants, business managers, contract specialists and project managers. All our people enable us to deliver world-class projects. They are highly motivated and, due to the continuous growth of the business, always able to benefit from individual development opportunities.

Since 2007 we've developed industry-leading tech

Our suite of technology provides pump system owners with the information they need to operate their respective stations and networks in the most cost-efficient way. Using the latest digital communication technology, data is available through our OPTMIZ systems 24/7 via the internet (security assured by 256-bit encryption), or by SCADA integration within a water company.

We were founded back in March 2001

We developed a proven service delivery model and product platform, all with the capability of measuring pump efficiency to a high degree of accuracy. However, the water and wastewater market needed more. So we launched a new range of thermodynamic equipment aimed at the industry and delivered a very successful pilot project in South Korea, leading to growth in Asia.
