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.

Khansaheb Sykes Assists Installation of Sewage Pipeline in Dubai, UAE

Khansaheb Sykes was recently approached to urgently assist with the installation of a sewage pipeline which connected through a major residential area in Dubai.

Given the urgency of the situation, our dewatering experts visited the site location at the earliest and a deepwell system was suggested to the contractor. The depth of the excavation and not having any shoring system made it a challenging project.

The trench lengthened to a kilometer with a depth of 8 to 10 meters. After a careful inspection, our engineers installed 45 no of deep wells in a series, at an interval of 22 meters center to center.

As a safety measure, a 6 inch diesel driven sump pump was also installed to tackle with any seepage from the side of the trench. The job was completed successfully without any problems and the contractor thanked our instant service.

Irrespective of the application, we can provide you with bespoke solutions with the most specialist skills and equipment. Our extensive range of pumps for hire provide you with a competitive service for any application.
