The client wanted to upgrade his water system so that he could have a constant flow and pressure from a low yielding borehole.We raised the borehole above ground and installed an insulated GRP enclosure containing his existing controls and a new booster pump & Ultra violet sterilization units. The Booster pump is using a suction […]
The Welsh Government Rural Communities- Rural development Programme 2014-2020 have grants available under the Farm Business Grant Scheme for funding of new borehole water supplies for farmers.
As the new 600mm diameter,stainless steel construction, has now been completed test pumping of the new borehole source is ongoing using our in house test pumping equipment, flow logging water meter and in-hole pressure transducers to monitor borehole water levels. Power is being provided by the use of two 100KVA generators set up to run […]
Work is ongoing on the drilling of a large 600mm diameter abstraction borehole for public water supply in Herefordshire. The borehole will have a stainless steel wedge wire screen installed to prevent sand ingress and maintain pumping efficiency. The borehole was drilled using our Soilmec PSM 16GT drilling rig using rotary auger and casing methods
In livestock management billions of pounds are spent on breeding programmes, nutritional analysis, food supplies, supplements, proactive medical care, animal movements and housing. While there may be marginal or even significant gains to be made there is one certainty: without water the animals will suffer. “If your water supply fails, your animals suffer” The photograph […]
Following borehole condition surveys it was established that a replacement large diameter borehole was required by one of the largest suppliers of water in the UK. With the predicted geology being sands, clays and gravels the drilling method chosen was Rotary Auger using temporary steel casings of 600mm diameter. Due to the large flow rates required […]
