Submersible pump hire enables infrastructural upgrades
One of the country’s largest construction companies recently contacted Sykes Pumps in search of equipment that would help them carry out improvement works on a culvert situated beneath a busy motorway. The conduit allows water of a local stream to pass below a major road, but years of neglect necessitated that both the culvert itself and surrounding concrete trash walls were upgraded.
A competitor had originally provided a series of diesel pumps to bypass the culvert, but this solution was unsuccessful – prompting our involvement. Our regional expert visited site and decided to propose an alternative pumping configuration comprising of three PX30 electric submersibles. Far from being just a simple installation, we also had to devise a complicated, enlarged pipework system that included lengths of 8” wire armoured and poly hoses and several 90⁰ bends in order to achieve a practical configuration.
