A Flygt Concertor, the world’s first wastewater pumping system with integrated digital intelligence, was the five millionth pump.

The Concertor, which delivers energy savings of up to 70% compared to a conventional pumping system, is destined for Scottish Water and will support the water utility’s commitment to achieve net-zero emissions by 2040.

“Water utilities are continuously working to raise the bar for their communities by increasing the efficiency, sustainability, and affordability of their infrastructure,” said Hayati Yarkadas, Xylem president of Water Infrastructure. “For more than a century, we’ve collaborated with customers around the world to advance Flygt technologies that help address their biggest water challenges. Today’s innovations include applying data analytics and decision intelligence to optimize water networks. These high-efficiency technologies also help utilities dramatically reduce energy-related greenhouse gas emissions.”
