Case Study

Sykes Pump Hire drafted in to assist with iconic redevelopment project

Before building contractors could begin the conversion of an internationally cherished landmark, Sykes Pumps were called to provide a pump hire solution to help cool down their machinery.

The once crumbling Battersea power station, which was closed in 1983 and left uninhabitable for the past 50 years, is undergoing a major redevelopment. Once completed the site will provide office, retail and leisure space, as well as over 4,000 new homes.

After taking into account the specific requirements of the project, we deployed a number of 6” super silent pumps capable of producing flows of up to 160m³ /h. The rental units were quickly fully operational and used to cool down the specialist machinery brought in to tear down the station’s four staple chimneys.

Our client was delighted with the impact of our pump rental solution and swift delivery, which allowed engineers to adhere to tight project deadlines.
