Sykes Pumps Pump Hire

Sykes Pumps received a call recently from the control room of a major sewage treatment works to report a serious danger of flooding of the facility. Due to very heavy rainfall during the night the main pumps on the site were unable to cope with the conditions and the ensuing high demand, which put the site in serious danger of flooding.

Sykes Pumps regional Technical Engineer, reported to the site to assess the situation and advise how Sykes Pumps could help solve the situation. After liasing with the manager at the local Sykes depot, it was decided that more than one depot would need to assist to avert the potential risk; Sykes’ depot management staff mobilised engineers and delivery vehicles from two locations, delivering a total of 6 no. 6” diesel pumps complete with hoses and accessories to site immediately. Once installed Sykes Pumps engineers attended site on a daily basis checking that the equipment was operating correctly and no further risk to the facility occurred.
