As the nation’s largest specialist hire company, we are able to offer the most comprehensive selection of pumps and accessories for hire combined with unrivalled expertise in overseeing projects of all sizes and scale. With depots situated across the UK, we have the means and resources to guarantee all enquiries are handled swiftly by someone who understands the local area. By frequently adding new products to our range, we are able to offer clients the most up to date and cost-efficient units suitable for virtually every application or purpose.
Our engineers and support staff have been directly involved in specifying pumps for use in environmental applications for many years, allowing them to recommend and then install the most appropriate pumping systems after considering all factors involved. Prior to deploying and commissioning any equipment on site, we inspect and test our equipment to ensure that it meets the standards required for the task at hand.
When considering pumps for use in environmentally sensitive situations we are able to offer a wide range of power options to accommodate site requirements. Whether we supply fully bunded and silenced diesel units, or electric units powered directly from a site supply or via a generator, we can ensure local conditions and restraints do not prevent us from offering you the right solution for the job.
For many years, Sykes Pumps have been involved in environmental remediation schemes which have seen us work with clients on the removal of pollutants, including sediment and soil, as well as the redirection of freshwater courses during civil engineering and construction projects. We have typically worked alongside our customers to help decontaminate brownfield sites, protect greenfield sites or simply ensure the health of workers and local
residents are not put at risk when site conditions prove challenging.
When chemicals and toxins settle at the bottom of water, pumps are often used to remove these. This process essentially separates potentially harmful sludge from the water, together with all residues, before being moved to a landfill site or similar space. Excavation is the primary method by which land remediation is carried out, with dangerous materials dug up out of the soil before being replaced by clean earth.
Our comprehensive selection of electric submersible pumps ensures t we have the capacity to accommodate your requirements, no matter how complex. Versatile and easily relocated, they are also ideal for hazardous environments and groundwater management. We appreciate that contaminants which need treatment will vary depending on your location and surroundings, but we pride ourselves on delivering an appropriate solution which fits your budget. We can even design a system capable of functioning unattended - meaning you don’t need to waste time or manpower supervising our units.
With an increasing amount of legislation passed aimed at safeguarding the condition of the environment, industrial processes are now stringently regulated to reduce the potential impact on land and water. A growing emphasis on preventing pollutants leaking in manufacturing facilities and similar environments means that companies involved in these sectors need equipment which will prevent environmental problems without interfering with production timetables.
In many instances, pumps are used to help control general pollution and effluence and minimise the risk of it affecting the environment. Water aeration - often needed in sewage works, for example - also requires the use of pumping equipment to increase oxygen saturation and thus improve the quality of water. With many years of experience supplying customers with sophisticated packages specifically tailored for intricate practices, we are able to install and commission apparatus whatever the application or environment.
Whether you seek a solitary unit for a small project or a multifaceted solution to run for an extended period, no-one is better equipped than Sykes Pumps to supply. Our impeccable reputation is corroborated by the fact we enjoy repeat business from many r clients.
