Andrews Sykes Supplies Pumps Aiding Construction to Poole’s Twin Sails Bridges

Andrews Sykes are proud to assist in the construction of the first ‘sail’ of the new Twin bridge being built in Dorset.

The operation is a major milestone in the construction of the bridge which will span Backwater Channel between Hamworthy and Poole, due to open in 2012.

The construction has been labelled as a “huge challenge” by Poole’s council as it involves more than 500 tonnes of steel and up to 41 separate sections of steel.

Andrews Sykes supplied 6×6” diesel pumps, hoses, valves and adaptors which was installed by qualified Sykes pumps engineers.
