Framo To Provide 96 Pumps for The Norwegian Ocean Technology Center

The Framo delivery includes 96 pumps that will pump huge amounts of water to create ocean currents in the basin at the research facility.

The pump system is designed and developed at Alfa Laval-owned Framo’s factory in Flatøy outside Bergen. This is part of a series of pumps with high capacity and low lift heights, which were initially developed to serve aquaculture facilities with fish in closed or semi-closed systems. The energy-optimized pumps will be installed in return channels in the pool wall, with individual speed control that provides great flexibility to vary the flow rate at different depths. The order also includes water straighteners in front and behind the pump, frequency converters, installation equipment, and a control system that will be integrated with the plant’s main control.
