This pump – a Nemo progressing cavity pump for high-density solids – was developed at the company headquarters in Germany. The factory in Brazil designed and built the components and the pump was then assembled, tested and shipped in the United States.
The millionth pump was built for the sewage treatment plant in the city of San Mateo in northern California. The plant processes around 60 million litres of wastewater every day. Two large Nemo hopper pumps with attached aBP modules — to prevent bridging of the dry sludge — will be used in San Mateo in the future.
