Landia Chopper Pumps make it Nuuk Clear in Greenland

Posted: Wednesday 31st January 2018

In Greenland's capital city, Nuuk (population approximately 17,500), pumps made by Landia have solved a troublesome clogging situation at an important pump station.

A common problem worldwide, even in this city that is home to one third of Greenland's people, existing pumps were constantly getting clogged by items such as wet-wipes and sanitary products.

But after plumbing company HJ-TEK A/S installed two of Landia's immersed chopper pumps in the pump well, the problem was quickly solved. Designed with a patented knife system, this Landia Chopper Pump is already proving extremely reliable, with the added bonus of it also reducing energy usage at the pump station by 50%.

Worldwide, an increasing number of Landia Chopper Pumps and Landia AirJets are being installed as the long-term solution to pump/lift station/wet well clogging, where they ensure that no blanket or crust forms. By continuously reducing the particle size of solids, call-outs by maintenance personnel are reduced to just routine inspections, creating significant savings on labour costs. Furthermore, there is no longer a need for vac truck hire.
