ENVIRONMENT AGENCY AWARDS HIDROSTAL LTD EXCLUSIVE CONTRACT TO SUPPLY ITS SUPER SILENT, DIESEL-DRIVEN SUPERHAWKPUMP RANGE

Posted: Tuesday 27th August 2013

The Environment Agency (EA) has awarded Hidrostal Ltd a three year, exclusive contract worth around £3m to supply pumps and pumping equipment.

Following a comprehensive tendering exercise, SuperHawk mobile, diesel-driven pumps from Hidrostal met the rigorous quality and pricing criteria laid down in the EA’s framework for the contract.

Hidrostal’s SuperHawk diesel pumps provide enhanced fuel efficiency, thereby reducing environmental impact and leading to an average saving of £500 per week for Hidrostal customers across the range of 3” to 12” pumps. In addition, SuperHawk pumps operate as quietly as 53 dB(A) – a huge environmental benefit where work is carried out in residential areas or where wildlife may be sensitive to noise.

Kirsty Browning , Contracts Manager, Environment Agency, commented on the decision, saying, “The Hidrostal SuperHawk is specifically designed with efficiency and environment in mind and has lower CO2 emissions than its competitors, giving a 30% CO2 reduction across the range. It continues to benefit the Environment Agency as it offers low fuel consumption. Hidrostal has also confirmed the possibility of running the pumps on sustainable bio-diesel which we will be actively looking into. All of this will contribute to meeting our carbon reduction targets.”

Hidrostal MD, Steve Blakemore, commented, “We are delighted to be working so closely with the Environment Agency and consider this a welcome endorsement of the engineering superiority of our SuperHawk diesel-driven, mobile pumping solutions, which serve to maximise performance and to lower financial and environmental costs for our customers.”
