Khansaheb Sykes New Addition to its Drilling Fleet

Khansaheb Sykes the UAE’s longest and most established Dewatering Solutions provider and Ground Water Control Specialist has further increased its fleet of drilling machines due to the increased project associated with Wellpoint Dewatering.

The New addition complements our already extensive fleet of Straight Mast Drilling Machines, on this occasion Khansaheb Sykes opted for the Doosan DX80R 8Ton Steel Tracked Excavator due to the success of an earlier purchased DX55 5Ton Excavator which has been faultless. Khansaheb Sykes fitted its unique straight mast design which allows continuous drilling to a depth of 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

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

Dewatering solution for construction of a Sea Intake Structure

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 conditions at site in order to proceed with the appropriate dewatering solution.

Our site engineers therefore installed 35 electrical drainage dewatering pumps, strategically placed around the excavation area to control the flow of groundwater entering the construction site.

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.”
