Selwood, the UK’s leading pump rental solutions provider, has increased its submersible pump capability with an investment in flotation devices from Sulzer.
The significant investment adds a modular flotation system which increases Selwood’s capability to position submersibles and pipework across bodies of water such as lakes and lagoons.
The solution makes pumps visible and easy to identify on the water, is quick to assemble and disassemble, and can be set up flexibly to enable use with a range of pipeline lengths and pump weights from 160kg to 600kg.
At Selwood, we love a challenge – and we’ve set ourselves an ambitious one to mark our 75th anniversary this year.
Our exceptional people in pump solutions and plant hire branches around the UK will be pulling together with the aim of raising £75,000 for charity through a range of events and activities.
When Selwood was founded in 1946, Britain was rebuilding itself in the aftermath of the Second World War. Now, in 2021, the country is facing the challenge of recovering from the social and economic impacts of the pandemic.
Selwood’s pump rental vehicle fleet has been upgraded with the addition of six new Daf CF trucks. The trucks are compliant with Euro-6 emissions regulations, reflecting our commitment to investing in our fleet and minimising the impact of our operations on the environment.
Selwood has become the first UK rental company to offer pumps that can be fuelled by vegetable oil in an industry-leading move that will significantly cut greenhouse gas emissions.
The company has completed extensive testing of HVO (Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil) in its fleet of market-leading pumps.
Selwood plant hire customers can now use QR codes to access bitesize video guides to help them carry out daily maintenance checks on their equipment.
The guides have been completed for the dumpers, telehandlers, excavators and rollers in the fleet and are viewable through the innovative Selwood QR system.
