The Sykes Group team have recently responded to an urgent call to supply pump and power solutions to the town of Edgecumbe in New Zealand, after heavy rain lashed the region.
As soon as the extent of flooding was realised, our technical team was engaged to assist affected areas. Approximately one dozen of our dewater pumps were shipped in, including hoses and couplings, along with a 200kVA FG Wilson genset for power provision.
Floodwaters from several locations were removed within two weeks, thanks to the dedication and effort of our team, whom received an official letter of appreciation from EBOP regional council.
“Your involvement in the recent Edgecumbe flooding emergency pumping operation is hugely appreciated by Bay of Plenty Regional Council and the wider community. The emergency pumping operation was extremely successful with the majority of floodwaters being removed inside a 14 day period.” – wrote the Rivers and Drainage Manager.
