The Beneath the Surface series focuses on innovations across the world of water, highlighting technological advancements and ways communities are coming together to protect this precious resource.

Flowserve’s film tells the story of how its products and services are enabling a critical component of the Netherlands’ flood management strategy, the Afsluitdijk, and protecting millions of people from devastating floods. Viewers can learn more about the innovative ways Flowserve teams engineered, manufactured and tested some of the largest concrete volute pumps the company has ever created while meeting the environmental requirements needed to protect the ecosystem where the pumps operate.

“From helping provide fresh drinking water to protecting our communities from floodwaters, we understand the importance of preserving and managing this life-sustaining resource,” said Scott Rowe, Flowserve president and CEO. “Enabling the Afsluitdijk to protect the people of the Netherlands from flooding is a very real way we’re helping make the world better together, and we look forward to further advancing our reach in the water market through our diversification, decarbonization and digitization growth strategy.”

“The aim of this series is to show how the water industry is rising to the challenge of building greater security, resilience and stewardship in global water systems with a steady stream of pioneering solutions,” said Simon Shelley, vice president of BBC StoryWorks Programme Partnerships. “It’s been a pleasure to tell these stories, and we hope the series will encourage viewers to consider how we can manage our most precious resource more wisely.”
