The appointment of Integrated Pump Technology as the exclusive distributor of Godwin diesel driven dewatering pumps in Zambia and the Democratic Republic of the Congo heralds a new era of efficient and cost-effective dewatering solutions for the mining industry in these regions.
Jordan Marsh, MD at Integrated Pump Technology, says the company’s appointment not only grants customers access to the full spectrum of Godwin dewatering pump units but also marks the introduction of the powerful Godwin HL270, the largest dewatering pump in the range, to customers in the region.
Designed to tackle the unique challenges posed by dewatering in deeper mines as well as in high pressure water transfer applications with remarkable efficiency, the diesel driven Godwin HL270 is destined to become a popular choice for mining operations in both Zambia and the DRC.
The Godwin HL270, one of the latest additions to the Godwin pump range, is set to change dewatering in the mining industry. With a maximum head of 300 metres and a higher efficiency impeller, the HL270 offers an unparalleled solution for mines operating at greater depths while minimising power consumption.
One of its standout features is its ability to automatically prime to 8.5 metres of suction lift from a dry start. Moreover, this robust pump can handle various fluids and liquids, including those with solids up to 30 mm in diameter.
Its flexibility in operation is another highlight, as it can be equipped with either automatic or manual starting/stopping options through an integral mounted control panel or optional wireless remote access, depending on the specific application.
“While access to high performance pumps is crucial, the importance of dependable aftermarket support cannot be overstated, particularly in remote mining regions,” Marsh says. “Our teams have extensive experience in the Copperbelt region, and this includes skilled field service technicians capable of providing comprehensive technical support on an ongoing basis. This ensures that mining operations in Zambia and the DRC can rely on prompt assistance, minimising downtime and maximising productivity.”
Marsh says this ready access to reliable aftermarket support, makes Godwin pumps a competitive choice for mining operations in these demanding African environments.
“Godwin dewatering pumps are not only powerful and efficient but also cost competitive, and this allows customers access to a quality manufactured product capable of meeting demanding dewatering needs,” he says. “This affordability makes Godwin pumps an attractive option for both large-scale mining operations and smaller ventures looking to optimise their dewatering processes.”
The Godwin range, distributed exclusively in Zambia and the DRC by Integrated Pump Technology, caters to a wide array of dewatering requirements. Another member of this range is the Godwin BD150 which is ideal for everyday dewatering applications. Its versatility makes it a reliable choice for a multitude of tasks in the mining industry.
“We believe that the appointment of Integrated Pump Technology as the exclusive distributor of Godwin pumps in Zambia and the Democratic Republic of the Congo heralds a new era of efficient and cost-effective dewatering solutions for the mining industry in these regions,” Marsh concludes.
