Khansaheb Sykes has been awarded to sub contract a dewatering system for a major project in Sharjah, UAE. The construction is spread over a huge area, where an office building and two warehouses are being built for commercial purpose.
Considering the large area to be dewatered, our engineers have installed wellpoints in a box formation. They are 200 wellpoints installed on site, which connect to a header pipe which discharges the groundwater 350 meters away from the site location. As the ground is flat and water flow is smooth, booster pumps were not used in between the site and the discharge point.
The entire dewatering system has been installed at a reduced ground level and the pumps are being operated 24 hours and 7 days a week in order to keep the site fully dry. We have appointed onsite engineers who have been monitoring the pump performance and ground water level continuously.
Our WP150/60 pumps are the best choice for wellpoint systems. They have the ability to pump water is outstanding. Wellpointing is an age old and trusted method to control groundwater from obstructing your construction schedule. Our local and foreign knowledge & expertise makes us able to provide you the best solutions for all your pump hire needs.
