Design Award to Grundfos
Grundfos SQFlex for domestic water supply won the Danish Design Award 2003. Grundfos group chairman, Niels Due Jensen, received the award on behalf of the company at a ceremony at the Danish Design Centre in Copenhagen, Denmark. The award committee of the Danish Design Award describes the Grund-fos SQFlex as a “very carefully prepared and well executed product.”
Being able to function by solar power as well as wind power and power from a generator, the Grundfos SQFlex is particularly suitable in areas without reliable power supply, and this flexibility contributed to the selection of the pump for the award. The committee stressed that the SQFlex system is technically advanced and simple in use and installation, saying, “Above all, it is a fine example of a comprehensive concept - the hallmark of good design.”
The Grundfos SQFlex was designed on the basis of more than 20 years of experience with solar pumps as well as input from a wide range of customer wishes, consulted for the design of the inner parts of the pump. To offer customers the best basis for selecting the right dimension of the pump, Grundfos collected solar data from 2,000 different places in the world and wind data from 18,000 places.
