In March 2017 the first-ever Flygt 3069 pump with Adaptive N to go into service in France faced high expectations. The client, leading French water company SUEZ, had been battling constant breakdowns in one of the pumping stations they operated, due to blocked wastewater vortex pumps. Their pumps clogged on average three times per month causing service disruption, increasing servicing costs in unplanned callouts and, potentially, environmental hazards in case of backflow or overflow. Three months from installation, the 3069 Adaptive N has not clogged a single time.
