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.
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.
