Under the agreement, Grundfos will make its energy efficiency expertise available to Boeing. As a result, Grundfos technology will play a part in making Boeing’s production run as energy efficiently as possible.
Boeing has also signed a similar agreement with Danish fluid control equipment manufacturer Danfoss.
“Boeing has a long-term, enduring commitment to protecting the environment. That includes collaborating with companies like Danfoss and Grundfos who have the technology and expertise to help us,” said Maria Laine, vice president, Northern Europe, Boeing International.
Grundfos technology and knowledge will be used in energy audits of Boeing’s plants, initially in the US, where large parts of the company’s fleet are produced.
“We have an ambition of contributing to reducing our customers’ environmental impact, and our collaboration with Boeing contributes to exactly that. Our energy efficient solutions can help them consume less energy than earlier, and we are proud that such a huge and professional company recognises our competences,” said Kim Nøhr Skibsted, Group Vice President, Communications, Public Affairs & Engagement at Grundfos.
Grundfos has already undertaken energy optimisations at Boeing facilities in St Louis and Everett near Seattle, with energy audits and pump replacements.
