Powering Emergency Water Pumps with Instagrid ONE

Floods pose a significant threat to communities worldwide, causing widespread damage and disruption. Emergency services often play a crucial role in flood relief efforts, working tirelessly to drain flooded buildings and other locations. A key challenge in these operations is ensuring a reliable source of energy to power the water pumps used to remove floodwater.

In response to this challenge, Mast Pumpen GmbH, a German company specializing in water pumps, has partnered with Instagrid to evaluate the use of the Instagrid ONEto power their water pumps during flood relief operations.

Key Advantages of Instagrid ONE for Flood Relief:

  • Portability: Weighing only 20kg, the Instagrid ONE is highly portable, making it easy to transport to affected areas.

  • Ease of Use: Featuring a plug-and-play design, the Instagrid ONE eliminates the need for complex setup or infrastructure, allowing for rapid deployment in emergency situations.

  • Extended Run Time: With a single charge, the Instagrid ONE can power water pumps for up to 60 tons of water movement, significantly extending operational capabilities.

  • Water Resistance: The Instagrid ONE's IP54+ rating ensures durability and protection against water splashes and dust, making it well-suited for harsh flood conditions.

To further enhance the power supply for flood relief operations, Mast Pumpen GmbH also evaluated the Instagrid LINK, a new device that allows up to three Instagrid ONEs to be interconnected, effectively multiplying the overall capacity by three.

"We expect that the powerpack from Instagrid will be the power supply of the future." – Jens Mast, managing director of Mast Pumpen GmbH
