Leading pump provider Selwood is backing a unique public event in Hull that aims to raise awareness about flooding and ensure residents are better prepared.
A team from Selwood have raised more than £4,500 for a vital children’s charity after taking on the fastest zip line in the world and climbing to the summit of Mount Snowdon. Ten employees from the leading pump and plant company took on a two-day sponsored challenge in Wales in aid of the Honeypot Children’s Charity, which helps hundreds of young carers and vulnerable children between the ages of five and 12.
Selwood will be showcasing new high-performance solids handling pumps that are ideal for quarrying and construction applications at the forthcoming Hillhead 2018. The S150M is a new medium head pump suitable for multiple uses, including long distance water transfer and dewatering for sites and quarries. Featuring Selwood’s trademark reliability and proven Selprime automatic self-priming technology, the diesel-driven model complements Selwood’s existing S range of solids handling pumps.
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.
