Sykes Pumps was recently approached by a major building and civil engineering company and asked to help assist with the repair of a local culvert.
Before work could take place, our engineers were required to provide an immediate pumping solution to over-pump the stream – cleaning out all the silt build-up and then removing old metal sheeting to allow the contractor to replace it with a new one.
Our response was to propose the hire of an 8” submersible alongside a smaller 6” submersible to catch excess water. We also provided a 60kVA generator and a separate fuel tank to enable quiet operation within a densely-populated neighbourhood.
This solution worked perfectly and all works were completed in record time – underling our ability to meet client objectives whilst also complying with the local Environment Agency’s instructions. The client was extremely pleased with the temporary pumping equipment, keeping the units on hire until the repairs had been completed.
