Deep well dewatering system for construction of a New Medical Centre in Abu Dhabi

A newly awarded Medical Centre beginning its construction in the heart of Abu Dhabi was looking for a dewatering solution to control groundwater while it performs a deep excavation for the foundations to be laid.

Khansaheb Sykes was approached to provide a feasible and dependable solution to the project. A complete site survey was done to measure the groundwater level and the soil condition in order to proceed with the appropriate dewatering solution

Due to the deep excavation and fine sands a deep well dewatering system was installed as the conventional wellpoint dewatering technique would be ineffective when the water table needs to be lowered below 7 to 9 meters. Our site engineers have installed 19 deep wells around the plot area to keep groundwater at bay from the project site.

As the UAE’s leader in providing dewatering solutions, we pride ourselves in being able to suggest  the most adequate, budget friendly and timely services in order to support your construction projects, whether it be Deep well dewatering, wellpoint dewatering or purely dewatering pumps for hire activities.

Depending on the project type, we are able to customize our offering to you in order to most suit your requirements. Our pumps are designed as such to handle the Middle Eastern harsh climate enabling it to be used for long term hire basis.

Khansaheb Sykes Pumps launches new Minivac eco pump

As the UAE’s leading dewatering pump hire specialist, Sykes Pumps has invested in developing the smallest, lightest and most fuel efficient addition dewatering pump to its range – the Minivac eco pump.

Billed as the ‘small pump with big pump features’, the Minivac eco is one of the few in its class to offer fully automatic self-priming. As a result, it provides a quick, simple and highly manoeuvrable first response pump for a variety of applications across a number of sectors including construction, civil engineering, utilities, industrial, marine, rail and leisure.

Quieter, more compact and more efficient than its competitors in the market, the Sykes Minivac eco provides end users with fuel savings of up to 50 per cent

The pump’s performance belies its low running costs however, with a 2,500 rpm running speed delivering heads of up to 28 metres and a maximum flow rate of 15 litres per second.

The Minivac eco is very versatile, with solids handling capabilities of 28mm spherical and eight hours of running time on a single standard fuel tank (further extension of running capacity is possible with a fuel buggy).

Development of the pump follows advances in technology, which have enabled Sykes Pumps to build excellent pump performance into a unit that is 20kg lighter than previous models at just 168 kg (dry weight) or 180kg with fuel.

The Minivac eco’s features and benefits have been designed to meet customers’ needs based on extensive market research and customer surveys conducted by Sykes Pumps. They include:

-          Fuel consumption savings of up to 50 per cent

-          Sykes Pumps’ Vacuum Priming System to provide automatic self-priming from dry

-          Reduced noise for built up areas (up to 10 dBa lower than previous models)

-          Lower exhaust emissions in compliance with the latest EU standards

-          Lightweight chassis making it easier to move on all terrain with two-wheeled, solid-tyre site trailer

-          28 m maximum head

-          15 l/s maximum flow rate

-          28 mm spherical solids handling

Chris Graham, sales director at Sykes Pumps, explains: “The Minivac eco retains all the great features that our customers love about the Sykes Pumps range while raising the bar for the pump hire sector in terms of emissions, fuel efficiency, noise, ease of use and performance.

“We believe it is the most robust, compact and cost effective entry level pump on the market

Lake Overpumping in Dubai by Khansaheb Sykes

Khansaheb Sykes was recently approached for a lake overpumping project location within a very high end development of Emirates Hills, Dubai.

A local contractor had undertaken the project for rectification work of the storm drain pipeline network which connects the lakes with the Dubai Municipality storm drain network. The system required silenced generator sets and all electrical dewatering pumps to provide a silent system that reduced the noise levels while working as we were surrounded by residential villas from all sides. The installation included a 2 kilo meter HPDE pipeline and a vehicle/pedestrian ramp.

The use of silent systems ensured that the neighborhood was not disturbed and work was carried out efficiently without disruption. Keeping in mind that the roadways and the pedestrian walkways are not blocked due to the installation, our team has installed a safety ramp which allowed the pipeline to pass underneath without causing any hassles.
