At Sykes Group, we know there’s no ‘one size fits all’. While we offer ready-made products, which are suitable for most projects, we are ready to work with our customers on customised units for their demanding operations.
Customisation doesn’t always mean starting from scratch. Recently, when a mining customer in West Africa required two pump sets, we provided them with a version of our original stock pumps, XH150-PR, after assessing their needs. The customisation only involved the mechanical seal, which was changed to gland pack and the fitting of some electrical parts. To meet the client’s specifications, these pumps were driven by a Caterpillar C13 engine with a tank capacity of 2,100 litres. Efficient and effective customisation done right.
We recently worked with a customer based in South Africa on the customisation and delivery of four of our SuperSkid LED mobile lighting towers. Among other requirements tailored to meet the specifics of their site, the units were built with user-friendly control panels, so the site teams didn’t require extensive training to operate the machines. The 18 LED lights can be switched separately by using the provided controllers and four hydraulic capabilities which allows the unit to be raised, extended, rotated and tilted for targeted lighting. These lighting towers were also equipped with a variety of safety features, such as an early fault indicator to prevent a heavy breakdown.
