Reykjavik Opera, Island

The Project:


Construction of new opera house in Reykjavik, Iceland


Executing company:

Company IAV


The problem:


The new opera house is situated directly on the seashore. During works on the foundations and underground garage it was necessary to pump out large volumes of groundwater.


The solution:


Multiple KRS822, each with 22kW power were installed. The KRS822 type can pump large volumes of water at relatively low pressure.

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.
