Case Study

Sykes provide long-term pump hire solution for property construction plan

When a Kent quarry became the subject of a major new development project, the customer overseeing the scheme was confident that Sykes could assist them effectively.

The site in question had planning permission for over 10,000 homes and almost 10 million square feet of commercial, retail and leisure space. Sykes have previously worked on similar projects nearby, including the Bluewater Shopping Center scheme.

A number of Sykes UVO 200/150F (D90) diesel pumps were recommended by our specialists, with these particular units deemed perfect for discharging water over a two-mile distance into the River Thames.

Our High Performance range of pumps has been designed for use across a broad range of challenging scenarios – dewatering among them. Here at Sykes we take pride in maintaining our equipment throughout the entirety of a pump hire, ensuring all units are operating at full capacity, until no longer required on site.

The pumps we supplied are expected to remain on hire for approximately three years, such is the scale of this development.
