Ruhrpumpen will expand its German pump testing facility

Maximum power starting June 2019 = 12,500 hp (9,300 kW)

Ruhrpumpen will install a new state-of-the-art high power test field with a medium voltage Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) at its manufacturing plant in Witten, Germany. The complete system is scheduled to start full operations in June 2019. The electrical system is designed to test pumps with electric motors from 4,16kV up to 13,8kV for 50 or 60Hz. Thanks to the VFD solution also other frequencies between 10 - 70 Hz can be used for special tests.
