On March 3, 2013, Poglar Pumping Station, one of Grundfos Indonesia's Flood Control Project, visited by Danish Minister for Trade and Investment, Pia Olsen Dyhr and Jakarta's Provincial Vice Governor, Basuki Tjahaja Purnama (Ahok). The Danish Minister for Trade and Investment visited poglar together with a large Danish business delegation consisting of leading Danish companies and institutions in key sectors.
The Poglar Pumping Station in West Jakarta is using Pump Gate, a high technology and perfect solution for flood control. As Poglar has limited space, which was one of the reason why the Pump Gate has been chosen by Jakartas' Provincial of Public Works Department. By applying Pump Gate, mininum space required, no need for extra land, cost saving for land acquisition. To compare the cost of ordinary pump station with Pump Gate, great reduction can be achieved, as the system is cost-efficient and user-friendly.
On this visit, the minister was accompanied by a representative from Copenhagen City to explore further the potential for dialogue and cooperation between Jakarta and Copenhagen on issues such as flooding, water management and climate adaptation.Through the visit, we shared Grundfos' competencies, experiences, know-how and strengthen the partnership between Denmark and Indonesia in sharing experiences and solutions in the near future.
