The order of a Chinese company includes the manufacturing of a batch of cryogenic vacuum pumps of the series Coolvac for the evacuation of space simulation chambers. These pumps with a flange diameter of 1.3 m anr pumping at rate of 60,000 litres per second for nitrogen.

With the inauguration of the new Competence Center “Nikkiso Cryo Europe” at Lewa S.R.L. in Milan, Italy, Lewa GmbH and its parent company Nikkiso Co. Ltd. improve the customer proximity and shorten the response cycle for cryogenic submerged motor pumps. At the same time they take the next step on the way to the creation of a stronger internal network.
The competence center complements the production and test sites in Higashimurayama (Japan) and Las Vegas (USA) by bringing together consultancy and sales activities for Nikkiso Cryogenic pumps. The UK office that had previously been responsible for these tasks in Europe was closed down. From now on, Nikkiso Cryo Europe in Italy will take over the responsibilities and deliver various pump parts. Thus, European customers will have local contact persons and they will not be required to handle their requests via Japan or the U.S.
