Xylem expands Latin American dewatering pump rental business

The company has just opened its newest dewatering pump rental facility in Barranquilla, Colombia. Xylem opened a new rental hub in Pará, Brazil in April 2016, and another in Chiclayo, Peru in January 2016.

These new hubs are in addition to six dewatering pump rental hubs that Xylem has opened in the region over the past six years as part of a multi-million dollar investment in Latin America.

“We continue to experience increased rental demand in Latin America as more and more customers recognise the value of our rental capabilities – a quick and cost-effective way to tackle water removal challenges supported by Xylem’s deep water transfer expertise,” said David Flinton, senior vice president and president of Xylem Dewatering, “This significant investment will expand our footprint to a total of 17 dewatering rental locations across the region, enabling us to better meet local customers’ needs with timely, turn-key solutions from a single source.”

Xylem’s new hub in Barranquilla has already won a significant contract to deliver 14 HL260M Godwin high-head diesel dewatering pumps to a mine in northern Colombia.
