Sykes Pumps help leading university with construction project

When one of West Sussex’s leading universities had plans to develop a new engineering and technological facility, Sykes Pumps was on hand to provide a temporary over-pumping solution to help facilitate the project. The scheme in question was taking place on a live university campus so required an immediate pump hire solution to assist with a sewer diversion while a section of the existing sewer mains was being replaced. After assessing the site, our specialists recommended the installation of two 8” electric submersible pumps. The pumps were able to over-pump the sewage from the manholes to a section of the mains approximately 80 metres away in each location, enabling the segment in between to be removed. The customer was extremely pleased with the expertise of our local engineer as well as our over-pumping package, which successfully managed the wastewater and kept it flowing once the equipment was installed and commissioned.
