Well Point Dewatering

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.

Due to the deep excavation and hard ground conditions, a conventional deep well dewatering system would have been ineffective. 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. read more

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 read more

Dewatering solutions for the Hassyan Power Station Project, Dubai

Khansaheb Sykes LLC awarded an additional dewatering package for the construction of a Pumping Station as part of the Hassyan Power Station Project in Dubai, UAE.

Ground conditions at the project site are very hard therefore a bespoke dewatering solutions design was required, conventional Deep Well dewatering wouldn’t be effective at this project.

Khansaheb Sykes having vast experience in the Middle East offered a bespoke Sump Pump dewatering solution with a well-engineered dewatering design, limiting ingress of fine sands present at the site and overcoming the recharge from the sea ONLY 20m from the excavation boundary. read more

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 read more

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. read more

Wellpoint Dewatering for Office Building in Sharjah, UAE

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. read more

Dewatering for Vibro Compaction

Soil compaction is a vital part in a construction process. Desert soil in Middle East is known to be less preferable for construction. Many contractors opt for vibro compaction of the soil prior to laying a foundation for a strong building base.

Khansaheb Sykes recently performed wellpoint dewatering for vibro compaction. This ground improvement technique was performed across two areas of 100 meters each to densify and clean friable soil, which wasn’t supporting the construction of a school in the emirate of Dubai, UAE. read more

Khansaheb Sykes Dewaters at Al Wasl, Dubai, UAE

Khansaheb Sykes was awarded as the Dewatering Sub Contractor for the upcoming collection of residential and retails units at the well-known Al Wasl Road, Dubai, UAE.
