If you’re farming fish on a commercial scale – in the tough conditions of the Northern Territory – you need heavy duty, reliable machinery. So when one of Australia’s largest producers of farmed Barramundi needed an efficient pumping solution, they called Sykes Group.

At the bottom of their breeding ponds – where the big fish are grown to size – a massive amount of sludge accumulates. So after one population of Barrumundi is removed and sent to market, the pond needs a good clean before a new batch of youngsters go in.

Brett Hansen, Territory Manager WA/NT explained “For this large-scale aquaculture operation, it’s very important for the health and quality of the product that the water is as clean as possible. That’s why a heavy duty pump that can handle sludge – without constantly blocking – is required”.

After visiting the fish farm and looking at the sludgy consistency of the liquid in the pond, Brett recommended a new Sykes Group CP150 pump. With its high-quality design, this powerful, low-maintenance pumping unit is perfect for the job.

“With a full tank of fuel, the CP150 can run constantly for 48 hours straight. Even better, it provides a suction lift of 9 metres, which allows the pipe to easily reach the bottom of these large Barrumundi ponds. And with the ability to handle 77mm of solids – plus a high flow capacity of 120 litres per second – this particular model is designed and constructed for tough jobs just like this one” said Brett.

If you’re business operation is located in the Nothern Territory – or far North WA – Brett can visit your worksite and provide a quote. Whether it’s a new pump – or maybe a lighting tower or generator – Sykes Group has plenty of stock available for immediate delivery.
