Hydraulically driven submersible pump with large capacity.
Diesel engine power pack powers the hydraulic submersible pumps.
Large diameter flexible hose, of 150mm / 6″ up to 300mm / 12″. Carries large volumes of water over large distances.
hose laying & recovery allows the use of large diameter hose.
When a fixed system is absent, damaged or simply does not offer enough capacity, it is necessary to be able to pump from an open water source (rivers, lakes, harbours or open sea). However, due to draft limitation of conventional suction pumps, access to water can be difficult.
HYTRANS from The Netherlands has developed a system to overcome this problem: the HYTRANS Mobile Water Supply System.
In 2005, 14 HYTRANS HydroSub HS150 units were deployed at the Buncefield Oil Depot fire in the UK. The fire was the largest post-WWII fire in Europe. HYTRANS HVP’s (high volume pumps) were used for pumping water to the site from a water source 1.8km away. The water was distributed across the site for fire fighting and cooling unscathed tanks. The pumps were also used to shuffle contaminated run-off between bunds and empty tanks to avoid an ecological disaster.
