Khansaheb Sykes Installs Large Wellpoint Systems in Abu Dhabi for Infrastructure Works

A well designed wellpoint dewatering system was installed in order to dewater the numerous construction areas at the project site. Our engineers have supplied and installed over 90 dewatering pumps from our Abu Dhabi depot to the site location.

Dewatering by wellpoint installation is known to adequately lower the groundwater table for construction of large construction sites. It is a very flexible system within the industry and is known as the most practical and economical solution for lowering the groundwater table in order to proceed with construction

We have utilized the Sykes WP 150/60  dewatering pumps, which are designed to handle both dirty and clean water and which are widely used for construction sites. Given its automatic vacuum system and excellent air handling capacity, the dewatering pumps maintain constant vacuum on the installed wellpoints and allow for a faster drawdown of water to speed up the process of dewatering.

Khansaheb Sykes provide emergency pumping solution for Hawksbill Turtle Habitat

The survival of the Hawksbill Turtle relies on clean, air-rated filtered sea water. Failure to provide this could lead to temporary closure of the Turtle Sanctuary. So, when one of Dubai’s leading hotels suffered failure to their water circulation pumping station, Khansaheb Sykes were contacted for an immediate solution.

Our pump specialists visited the location immediately due to the importance of keeping the water circulated, after initial inspection the installation of an AFEC 8220 Electric Submersible pump was temporary installed within the pumping station. Due to limited accessibility on site, a flexible discharge pipe was installed and laid around the pond area.

Emergency pumping solution for Hawksbill Turtle Habitat

As a result of our speedy response time, the AFEC 8220 Electric Submersible Pump unit was commissioned on the same day of callout which ensured the pool habitat of the Hawksbill Turtles was maintained
The client was extremely pleased with our tailored Pump Hire solution – keeping our unit on site for the duration of their maintenance works.

Khansaheb Sykes introduce the Sykes Silt Away

Following on from the success of the Sykes environmentally silt separation system, Khansaheb Sykes have introduced the same unit into their rental fleet for the UAE / GCC region.

In the majority of cases, water pollution is caused by the presence and prolonged build-up of sediment, silt and other abrasives which puts mounting pressure on our clients to ensure discharged water is as silt free as it can be before being reintroduced to a storm water network or directly back into the sea.

Increasing requirements for companies to take their ecological obligations seriously has led to Khansaheb Sykes adding a this new environmentally friendly product to our extensive hire fleet – the Sykes Silt Away. By deploying a Silt Away unit on site, customers can be confident of avoiding substantial fines and adverse publicity, as well as suffering enforced closures.

The unit has been designed for use in conjunction with the Sykes range of 6” dewatering pumps (150mm). As water is pumped through the Silt Away, it is filtered allowing the sediment and solids to be collected and contained within the unit.

In heavily contaminated situations, customers can connect two Sykes Silt Away units in series to ensure that the discharge is successfully cleansed. The implications of failing to observe environmental regulations are far-reaching and range from damaging natural habitats, killing wildlife and even blocking sewers. It is of huge importance that projects are completed within designated timeframes, but without compromising the safety of any given location.

Features and benefits include:

- Effective separation of suspended solids
- A robust, compact steel structure for maximum strength and durability
- Low-level inlet and outlet connections for safe, easy use
- Large capacity for applications where high flow is required
- Designed for safe transportation to and from site
- Innovative cleaning, sampling and emptying features

Speaking prior to the unveiling, Sykes Pumps sales director Chris Graham, said: “From listening to customers, we have designed a product that is both safe and easy to operate. Features like a hinged discharge chamber opening and dedicated flushing points facilitates easy emptying and cleaning.

“We have reacted to growing market demand for efficient environmental equipment by developing the new Silt Away, which has now been added to our extensive fleet for immediate availability.”

Khansaheb Sykes expands its Drilling Fleet

Khansaheb Sykes the UAE’s longest and most established Dewatering solutions and Ground Water Control Specialist has further increased its fleet of drilling machines due to the increase in wellpoint dewatering projects within the region.

To complement our already existing fleet of Straight Mast Drilling Machines, our new addition is a Hitachi 65USB capable of drilling 7.5mts in one movement.

This in turn reduces the down time compared to conventional drilling machines, whereby you have to stop operations and increase the drilling auger every 1.5 mtr’s to reach your desired depth

Another feature of the drilling machine is the Rubber tracks/crawlers which reduces the damage to the working areas (asphalt road or Interlocks)

Our Straight Mast Drilling Machines are mainly used in the drilling of wellpoints for Wellpoint Dewatering, however, the machine can also be utilized for the drilling and installation of Piezo meters and Earth Rods

Wellpoint Dewatering at Kizad Industrial Area, Abu Dhabi

Khansaheb Sykes was approached to install a wellpoint dewatering system for infrastructure works at Kizad Industrial Area in Abu Dhabi.

The project required a pumping test to identify the actual soil properties to enable the calibration of the proposed dewatering solution.

The wellpoint dewatering system design utilizes a series of wellpoints installed along the excavation of the construction offering a non-intrusive dewatering solution.

Khansaheb Sykes utilized their WP150/60 dewatering pumps for this project. As the project was over 8km in length and discharge location was 2 km away a number of GP150 dewatering pumps were installed as booster pumps.

Khansaheb Sykes Dewaters Dubai Hassyan 4X600MW Clean Coal Power Plant

Khansaheb Sykes has been awarded the Dewatering Sub Contractor for the upcoming construction of Dubai’s newest Clean Coal Power Plant. The project is expected to last almost 4 years.
The engineers at Khansaheb Sykes, offered a dewatering solution of sump pumping using dewatering pumps, whereby an open pit was excavated and perforated steel wells installed protected by gravel filtration pack, to collect groundwater efficiently.

Due to the vast construction area, project has been split in smaller construction areas. Due to the depths of the excavations electric submersible dewatering pumps have been installed with operation being 24 hours a day and 7 days a week, construction areas are now completely dry and the contractors are progressing with the construction without any groundwater impediment or problems.

Our experts also chose to install a buried French drain system which is connected to the sump pits via the filter pipe which is buried below the ground level, allowing the sump pits to be installed at greater depth providing an efficient dewatering solution.

The Construction Site Engineer has quoted us with the following feedback, “Khansaheb Sykes have provided a first rate dewatering solution for our project, we are happy with the perfectly dry site that has been achieved. Our construction is going on smoothly.”
