Following a comprehensive business review and keen competitive tender process, the Environment Agency has awarded Selwood a place on a new framework for its hired equipment requirements.
Selwood will provide static, towable and electric submersible pumps over the next six years under a framework that provides added value through improved efficiencies, consolidated reporting and service levels.
Environmentally-friendly pump technology was the star of the show as Selwood specialists showcased new models at two leading European exhibitions.
Significant interest has been seen in two new solids handling pumps – the S150 Electric and the S160Eco – at Pump Centre Conference and the world-leading trade fair IFAT. Both pumps have been designed and manufactured by Selwood at its UK manufacturing facility in response to increasing market demand for environmentally-friendly pumps with minimal to zero emissions.
Selwood’s versatile team of pump solutions specialists in Scotland tamed the River Urr to enable a client to carry out an open cut excavation of the riverbed.
The client called upon Selwood’s expertise to ensure the excavation area was kept dry for the duration of the works.
Selwood is supporting a pioneering community initiative that encourages learning and personal development in young people.
The pump and plant provider is backing St Michael's Primary School, Widnes, in taking part in the Halton Mayor’s Award, a bespoke programme of exciting challenges and activities for 10 to 13 year olds. The scheme resembles a junior Duke of Edinburgh award and sees children from across the Halton borough in Cheshire take part in a variety of activities outside of school hours, such as orienteering, litter picks and learning outdoor survival skills.
