Tate Britain unveils Grundfos

Tate Britain unveils Grundfos

When the Tate first opened to display a small collection of British artworks in 1897, it was Henry Tate’s private art collection that was at its core. Back then it would have been impossible to envisage that the Tate would, from these humble beginnings, grow to encompass four major sites and 70,000 artworks.

The most recent £45m project has involved leaving the classical façade of the Tate Britain in place but radically redesigning the interior to match its modern day needs. With new galleries, educational space and the opening up of additional space on upper and lower floors, this project has translated into an extensive and intelligent refurbishment, incorporating the introduction of a new up-to-date M&E system that has a complete pump solution from Grundfos Pumps at its heart.

With such a high dependency on an accurate and consistent internal temperature, choosing from the wide range of single and twin-pump energy efficient Grundfos TPE single-stage, in-line centrifugal volute pumps, was the ideal solution for this type of complex commercial heating and cooling applications. This was a particularly challenging project as the weight of the pumps when installed, would have been too heavy for the plant-room floor. Therefore a specially supported configuration was designed especially to overcome this issue. The large numbers of visitors will also find that any demand for water will be met by a Grundfos Hydro MPC-E, 4-pump booster set.

The completed project means a new lease of life for the Tate Britain through reconfiguring the internal space whilst retaining the overall character. Behind the scenes Grundfos pumps will continue to play their part by intelligently and efficiently supporting the infrastructure - as and when they are needed.
