"This is a huge recognition of the work that has been done to develop a product that sets the standard on the market", said group executive vice president, business development, Peter Røpke. "It is even better because we were awarded in these prestigious categories. With the development of MAGNA3, our objective was to set a new standard for pumps in terms of performance, user-friendliness and sustainability."

At the presentation of the Plus X Awards, Grundfos' Sonnenkraft freshwater module for utilising solar heat also won the award as the product of the year within heating systems. The product was recognised in the Innovation, High Quality, Functionality and Ecology categories.

The module is developed and manufactured by Grundfos. It is an important part of the Grundfos solutions which, by means of intelligent control, ensures that the circulator pump quickly gathers information about the water consumption in a given household, constantly providing the correct amount of hot water when it is needed, and thus minimising the energy consumption.
