F1 gets a boost from Lowara


Bahrain International Circuit


Application: Municipal water supply

In Formula 1 you should expect high speeds. But at the Bahrain International Circuit you can also expect high temperatures – and high expectations! The circuit held its first Grand Prix in 2004, and from the outset Lowara pumps have played their part in supplying water to the track and its 45,000 spectators. In the build up to the 2007 Grand Prix in April, a replacement borehole booster system was installed and commissioned – in just two days. Water is pumped around the venue from two vast 580 cu metre tanks, each tank having three ZN658 submersible borehole pumps, two on duty and one standby. With horizontal installation, the six pumps work in an alternating sequence round the clock to keep up demand. The successful installation has made a lasting impression on the client.
