Sykes Pumps assists wind farm project in Essex

When wind turbines are constructed on farmland or open spaces, it is imperative that water is removed from the excavations and ground foundations. So when our client – one of the UK’s largest engineering and construction companies – approached us regarding an effective pump hire solution, we made sure we delivered equipment that was suited to the application.

Due to the unstable ground conditions a temporary roadway tracking had been installed, which enabled the use of diesel driven units. The units were ideal for use in such remote locations. The customer hired 4 x GP100M pumps and 2 x GP150M pumps, these units were delivered to site along with all of the necessary hoses and couplings. The units were installed on site and dealt with the flow rate perfectly.

To ensure that this critical assignment ran smoothly throughout, a Sykes Pumps service engineer visited site regularly to maintain pumps and check they were fully operational. The contractor was therefore extremely pleased with our service and we remain their preferred pump supplier, having just started a new job in the Essex area.
