2014 Operations Challenge Maintenance Event Recap
Bridgeport, NJ October 31, 2014 – Xylem’s Godwin, Flygt and MJK brands were featured in this year’s Operations Challenge at the 2014 Water Environment Federations Technical Exhibition and Conference (WEFTEC) in New Orleans, LA.
Municipal utility authorities from around the country form teams to compete in statewide events. State level winners, as well as teams from around the world, advance to the national Operations Challenge event at WEFTEC each year. The challenge involves four-person teams of wastewater collection and treatment professionals competing in five areas. One of these areas is the maintenance event.
In the maintenance event, teams are tasked with responding to a lift station failure by immediately installing a portable standby pump. Prior to deploying a portable pump, the teams perform a 40-point maintenance inspection and service on a Godwin Dri-Prime NC80 pump featuring Flygt N-technology and an MJK transducer. Then the pump set is transported to the lift station, connected to a simulated force main with a level transducer set in a wet well, and the team completes installation of the backup pumping system. This event is timed and penalties are given for missed steps and safety violations.
Winners of this year’s maintenance event:
Each year, the WEFTEC Operations Challenge grows and more teams compete. This year, teams traveled from as far as Hawaii, Canada, and Argentina to participate in the event.
Xylem’s equipment will be featured in the maintenance challenge through 2017.

Godwin Pumps Now Available with Tier 4 Technology
BRIDGEPORT, New Jersey – September 22, 2014 – Xylem, a leading global water technology company dedicated to solving the world's most challenging water issues, today announced that its Godwin range of powerful diesel pumps is now available with Tier 4 engines, the most up-to-date engine technology available. The new Tier 4 engines in Godwin pumps reduce air pollution by minimizing particulate matter (PM) and nitrogen oxides (NOx), as well as delivering enhanced engine control and reduced engine noise.
Tier 4 engines are now required under the United States' Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Clean Air Act: emissions standards for diesel engines. Manufacturers are currently required to abide by Final Tier 4 regulations for 25-74 horsepower engines.
"We have worked closely with engine manufacturers to package this new technology within our sale and rental equipment. Godwin is committed to providing the best pumps in the industry and to helping customers understand the new requirements and the impact these changes will have on their businesses," said, Mike Ramos, Vice President & Director of Operations and Engineering for Xylem’s Godwin brand. "While these standards will demand some adjustment across the industry, we are committed to guiding our customers through the transition and helping them understand the operation and application of these advanced engines within dewatering pumps in the field. This year we have added nearly 300 Interim Tier 4 and Final Tier 4 engines to our rental fleet, with plans to add hundreds more of Tier 4-equipped pumps in 2015. As always, we are committed to supporting our customers to solve their toughest dewatering challenges.
"The new diesel engines are just one of the many technological advancements Godwin has introduced over the last year. For example, our new Field Smart Technology works with Godwin’s PrimeGuard pump controller, enabling customers to constantly monitor and control equipment remotely and ensure optimum efficiency," concluded Mike.
In order to support customers’ budget planning, Xylem is communicating the additional costs associated with these updated Tier 4 diesel engines while there are still options available, before regulations require the entire HP range to be upgraded to Final Tier 4. Final Tier 4 diesel engine pricing in the 25-74 horsepower range will increase the cost of Godwin four inch and six inch dewatering pumps by between 25-35 percent. The price increase is mainly due to Final Tier 4 engines having electronic builds instead of the previously used mechanical builds. The inclusion of a diesel particulate filter – which had not been supplied with this horsepower range of engines previously, but is now required by the regulations – also adds to the price change. Over the coming years, larger horsepower engines will also see a price increase as Tier 4 regulations come into effect for pumps in the higher HP range.
Tier 4 diesel engine technology is available within Xylem’s Godwin dewatering pump equipment for sale or rental. Xylem also offers alternative pumping solutions such as Godwin electric driven Dri-Prime or Flygt submersible pumps, and variable frequency drives to meet customers’ varied needs.
