River Overpump for New Bridge Installation

Exsel fleet has “Specialist capability” for River bypass

The project was to supply and install two huge submersible/immersible L12K pumps, with each pump capable delivering 1,000 L/sec at a 10 m head. The pipeline consisted of Individual 450mm suction and discharge lines that were installed across the site. At the end of each delivery line, special care was taken to avoid scouring of the riverbed. The system was manually operated and driven by a 500 kva silent diesel generator.

Exsel the Complete Solution Provider

We carried out a full installation & commissioning of the system and once installed regular services and inspections were undertaken to ensure complete functionality.

Exsel fleet has “Specialist capability”

The equipment utilised by Exsel on this planned application is not available in any other UK hire fleet.

Investing in the right quality equipment for the application, the Exsel fleet has a specialist capability particularly when considering sewage applications. As proven in this application, Exsel has provided solutions and equipment that others have not been able to match.
