UK Pump hire specialist, Sykes Pumps, has added the GP80 eco to its eco range of diesel pumps, providing an ideal solution for smaller marine civil engineering sites.

Featuring a silenced engine offering tier 4 compliance for discreet deployment in residential and noise-sensitive areas, the 3” diesel pump has an integral 35 litre fuel tank enabling continuous operation for 24 hours.

Capable of heads of up to 24m and a maximum flow rate of 36 litres/second, the new pump compares favourably with other 3” pumps on the market and provides a solids handling capability of 40mm, making it suitable for even the most demanding of sites.

The pump has been designed for easy deployment on site and ease of use in a variety of noise sensitive environments. The compact unit features a built-in fuel tank enabling full functionality within seconds of arrival on site, with quick release couplings for swift installation and excellent manoeuvrability.

Sykes Pumps’ sales director, Chris Graham said: “This pump is small in terms of size but big in terms of performance, offering high flow rates and discharge pressures for installations where hose runs are required, despite its enviable fuel efficiency of just 1.4 litres per hour.

“Fast and easy to install, cheap to run and offering a robust solution for a wide range of environments, it is a natural step up from our popular entry level Minivac eco and an ideal choice for sites where fuel efficiency, flow rates and noise control are critical.”

The GP80 eco replaces Sykes Pumps’ former GP80 model as an energy efficient upgrade designed to meet the needs of a variety of customers and applications.  It is part of a continuous investment in new pump assets and technology at Sykes Pumps, which has 25 local depots across the UK.
