Building contractor enlists the help of Sykes Pumps on renovation contract

In recent months especially, Sykes Pumps has worked closely with some of the country’s largest utility companies to help upgrade various parts of their infrastructure. Our expertise in this field is well-known, with clients often citing our excellent range of equipment as one of the key reasons they seek our assistance.

Earlier this month, we were contacted by a national construction company responsible for replacing a length of pipeline for South East Water. As a major account customer, our contact was extremely familiar with our pump hire fleet which enabled them to request a particular model without there being a need for a site survey.

Two GP80 eco pumps were promptly delivered to site, as well as the relevant hoses and accessories. By deploying these units, the client was able to commission the shutdown of a major water pipeline to enable the necessary remedial work to be carried out. The GP80 eco was specifically chosen for this project because its compact size allowed ease of movement and the integral fuel tank permitted continuous functionality for up to 24 hours.

Thanks to the solution’s simplicity, our customer was able to complete the upgrade within the scheduled timescale and without any fuss. Having worked on dozens of similar jobs this year alone, our engineers are extremely adept in advising the best course of action when clients are unsure.
