Construction of a shopping centre in Oslo, Norway

The project:


Construction of a shopping centre at the Port of Oslo


Executing companies:

Oslo Vei AS

Norwegian Maritime Museum

Intec Pumper AS


The problem:


During bulldozer excavation of larger areas at below freezing temperatures, water needed to be pumped out from many points. At the same time, nine shipwrecks from the 17th century were found. Archaeologists from the Norwegian Maritime Museum had to keep the sites dry.


Our solution:


Model LB-480A and KTVE21.5 pumps were distributed over the whole construction site. These pumps are equipped with a sensor that turns the pump on and off as the water level changes. This saves power and avoids unnecessary wear. Thanks to their robust constructions, the pumps can also withstand a great deal of cold.

In the event of abrasive and corrosive utilization, stronger wear and tear will take place naturally in certain components. With regards to the above application wear and tear can take place mainly in impeller, agitator, suction plate, shaft sleeve, oil ring, mechanical seal, pump casing, strainer, motor casing and discharge coupling. Depending on the working conditions the lifetime of those parts might vary significantly and can be shorter than the legal warranty period.
In this regard, please pay attention to our general terms and conditions that we also send to you by mail on request.
