Godwin Pumps: A Game Changer for African Mining

How a South African company is revolutionizing dewatering solutions in Zambia and the DRC

by Victor Adetimilehin


Dewatering is a vital process in the mining industry, especially in regions where water scarcity and flooding pose significant challenges. A South African company, Integrated Pump Technology, has been appointed as the exclusive distributor of Godwin diesel driven dewatering pumps in Zambia and the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), offering a new level of efficiency and cost-effectiveness for mining operations in these countries.


The Power of the Godwin HL270


One of the most remarkable products in the Godwin range is the HL270, the largest dewatering pump in the range, which is designed to handle the unique demands of deeper mines and high pressure water transfer applications.


The HL270 has a maximum head of 300 meters and a higher efficiency impeller, which means it can pump more water with less power consumption. It also has an automatic priming feature that allows it to start from a dry condition and lift water up to 8.5 meters. Moreover, it can handle various fluids and liquids, including those with solids up to 30 mm in diameter.


The HL270 is also flexible in operation, as it can be equipped with either automatic or manual starting/stopping options through an integral mounted control panel or optional wireless remote access, depending on the specific application.


Jordan Marsh, Managing Director at Integrated Pump Technology, says the company’s appointment as the exclusive distributor of Godwin pumps in Zambia and the DRC not only grants customers access to the full spectrum of Godwin dewatering pump units but also marks the introduction of the powerful Godwin HL270 to customers in the region.


“We believe that the Godwin HL270 is destined to become a popular choice for mining operations in both Zambia and the DRC, as it offers an unparalleled solution for mines operating at greater depths while minimizing power consumption,” he says.


The Importance of Aftermarket Support


Marsh says that while access to high performance pumps is crucial, the importance of dependable aftermarket support cannot be overstated, particularly in remote mining regions.


“Our teams have extensive experience in the Copperbelt region, and this includes skilled field service technicians capable of providing comprehensive technical support on an ongoing basis. This ensures that mining operations in Zambia and the DRC can rely on prompt assistance, minimizing downtime and maximizing productivity,” he says.


He adds that Godwin pumps are not only powerful and efficient but also cost competitive, and this allows customers access to a quality manufactured product capable of meeting demanding dewatering needs.


The Godwin Range


The Godwin range, distributed exclusively in Zambia and the DRC by Integrated Pump Technology, caters to a wide array of dewatering requirements. Another member of this range is the Godwin BD150, which is ideal for everyday dewatering applications.


Based on a report by Mining Review, Its versatility makes it a reliable choice for a multitude of tasks in the mining industry.


Marsh says that the appointment of Integrated Pump Technology as the exclusive distributor of Godwin pumps in Zambia and the Democratic Republic of the Congo heralds a new era of efficient and cost effective dewatering solutions for the mining industry in these regions.


“We are confident that our customers will benefit from the Godwin pumps and the service we provide, and we look forward to building long-term relationships with them,” he concludes.


The Godwin pumps are not only a game changer for the African mining industry, but also a source of hope for the communities that depend on it for their livelihoods and development.
