Varisco Wellpoint to become a part of Atlas Copco Specialty Rental Division

Varisco Wellpoint, based in Vicenza, Italy, has 12 employees. Originating from the pump manufacturer Varisco, Varisco Wellpoint has been focusing on specialized pump rental in Italy for over 33 years. Following the Varisco acquisition in 2015, Varisco Wellpoint has been part of the Power and Flow Division within the Power Technique Business Area.


With a rental fleet consisting of over 1000 pumps, they mainly support groundwater drainage during excavation works, with most of the business coming from the Italian market.


”Varisco Wellpoint is a great company with highly competent and very committed employees” said Mikael Andersson, President of the Power and Flow Division. “We believe this new organizational structure will allow Varisco Wellpoint to achieve their full potential.”


Starting April 1st, Varisco Wellpoint will become part of the Specialty Rental Division. Given the synergies in their business, Varisco Wellpoint has often collaborated with the local Specialty Rental team. This move consolidates the organizational structure to further grow the specialty rental business.


”Varisco Wellpoint is a leading company in its field of expertise in their region” said Tim Last, President of the Specialty Rental Division. “This organizational alignment is consistent with our strategy to strengthen and expand our specialized pump rental offering.”

Mestre Bypass Road

A prominent consortium of companies commissioned the construction of the Mestre bypass road to be set up in 3 years. Varisco Wellpoint provided support in the construction of the wellpoint plant and dealt with high efficiency pumping systems (WEL TANK). The solution included wellpoint plants ranging from 100 to 300 m each with high efficiency and low energy impact electric pumps (4kw of power). The project was carried out within the required time frame thanks to the technologies implemented and support in the field.

The WEL TANK automatic vacuum assisted pump is suitable for applications with variable groundwater flow rate and level requirements. Equipped with an electric motor, it is extremely quiet, energy efficient as well as ideal for use in residential areas.

Technical specifications:
• variable flow rate up to 274 m3/h;
• maximum power absorbed 4 kW;
• maximum head up to 24m.
