Stuart Pumps & Supporting local communities
Stuart Pumps were mentioned in the news in relation to the supply of a diesel engine driven autoprime pump to a local community who throughout recent history has been hit with flooding problems. The community of Earl Street in Oxford grouped together under the drive and leadership of Nick Hills who managed to secure a £20,000 grant through Scottish Power to purchase their own pump so they wouldn’t have to wait for normal response teams to organise mobilisation of portable pumping equipment for the flood hit street.

Stuart Pumps Serving the Oil & Gas industry worldwide
Stuart pumps recently completed and dispatched, loaded into two 40ft containers heading for Africa a brand new KSB horizontal 6 stage multistage pump model MTCA150/6 capable of developing a duty of 35bar at 300m3/h. Long coupled to a Volvo, radiator cooled, variable speed diesel engine model 1660VE the set was mounted within a steel crash frame fabricated at our new workshops in Shropham. The engine is connected to a new large screen LED digital panel made by DeepSea and was programmed by our own site engineers enabling push button starting, quick speed control adjustment and with the pressure gauge mounted next to the panel the operator can safely judge the outlet pressure. Fitted with quick release couplings for connection to a new 5440 litre bunded bulk fuel tank, also supplied by Stuart Group the set is easily moveable with using the forklift pockets or the corner lifting eyes. Also supplied as part of the package was a new gate valve, 45deg discharge elbow along with new 10” suction and 8” flexible high pressure rated ANSI 300 flanged wire armour pipework.

Our customer was looking for a silent, cost effective option for a test pump at a fire safety training centre. We didn’t have a suitable used diesel engine driven pump within our current used stock but we were able to offer and deliver an electric pump, diesel engine generator and soft starter control panel as a complete kit all mounted on a single skid frame base. In addition to make the pump work automatically on demand a pressure switch was connected to the remote start function on the generator with a start delay timer fitted in the panel.

Stuart Group Race Trophy
The race compromised of 18 competitors and after the race briefing, the drivers took to full race suits and helmet and entered the pit for a 10 lap grid warm up. After the 10 laps, it was no surprise to see Scott Hunt (Previous champion) take pole position on the grid only conspicuous by his own Stig helmet. The race was on and a gruelling 50 lap race was on seeing several spin outs and head on collisions into walls of tyres. As the race progressed, the pace increased as drivers mastered the Ellough Park Circuit and for some, the race was bone shakingly painful attempting to keep up with young keen race drivers. Triumph was unsure until the race drivers were presented with the results. Taking position on the podium in third place was Luke Downs, in second place, Scott Hunt and a new winning champion of Rhys Downs. Rhys took the trophy and to his delight, it was covered all in champagne. There followed a few drinks and some pizza with Rhys waiting to give autographs but there were few in the queue. Well done to all competitors, 60 laps in a full race suit on a lovely sunny summer evening was a major achievement.

Full-year loss for SpeedyWritten by Helen Wright - 17 May 2016
UK rental company Speedy hire has reported a £57.6 million (€74 million) pre-tax loss for fiscal 2015, while revenues dropped 12% year-on-year to £329 million (€421 million).
The company reported exceptional costs for the year ended March 2016 of £59.9 million (€76.7 million), including acquisitions and restructuring costs.
The international division has been restructured including the closure of operations in Egypt and Qatar and the sale of the business in Oman in the current financial year.
The group also withdrew from the UAE spot hire business in the previous year, but said its remaining oil and gas activities in the region were currently operating profitably.
In the UK and Ireland, where the majority of Speedy’s revenues are generated, the company said it had seen a partial recover in the final quarter. Nevertheless, revenues fell 12% year-on-year in this division to £309 million (€396 million).
Total capital expenditure during the year amounted to £69 million (€88.4 million), compared to £87.7 million (€112 million) for the 12 months to the end of March, 2015. Speedy said £57.8 million (€74 million) of its cap-ex spend was related to rental equipment.
Chief executive Russel Down said, “We have restructured the business, cut overheads to more closely align them with revenues, enhanced the management information generated from our systems and improved our cash performance. We are now starting to see an improvement in our culture and greater efficiencies throughout our operations.
“The business is starting to respond positively to the actions we are undertaking. With a renewed focus on sales, tighter overhead control and better management information with which to manage return on capital we are creating a solid platform for the future.”
And Jan Åstrand, executive chairman, added, “We are beginning to see the business responding to the actions being undertaken by the new management team with an improvement in our culture of accountability, customer service, and in driving greater efficiencies throughout our operations.”

Immingham Bridge Construction
Stuart Group provided a power solution to Costain to allow a road access beneath a live railway line in Immingham as part of the A180/A160 infrastructure works. The project involved sliding a 3800 tonne concrete structure approximately 25 metres into position beneath the railway. The massive culvert-like structure was built in an excavation above a lower concrete slab which would form the foundation on which the bridge would slide.

||Stuart Wells – View of a well point system for a new build house
well point system for a new build house
The client is building an off the shelf “flat pack” house that will be complete in 6 weeks from breaking ground. The site investigation identified an issue with the ground water level that would prevent the construction of the basement in the dry. A disposable well point system was therefore designed and installed by Stuart Wells around 3 sides of the basement with one side open to allow machine access to excavate down to the foundation level. This allowed the overlying sands and gravels to the chalk to excavated in the dry. The well points were installed over a 3 day period and commissioned ;the following day excavation took place and the blinding base layer was poured the following morning allowing the contractor to gain 2 days of programme and ensuring the client will be able to enjoy Christmas in their new house.

||Stuart Wells - Sizewell Power Station Safety Award For SWS Operative
Sizewell Power Station Safety Award For SWS Operative.
Stuart Wells are currently undertaking dewatering works at Sizewell Power Station.The abstracted waters discharge to an engineered lined settlement lagoon, which has had buoyancy aids placed on poles around the lagoon perimeter.
Dave Manton the SWS dewatering operative on site highlighted via the site safety suggestion box that should somebody be unfortunate to fall in and nobody noticed they would not be able to “reach the floatation ring on the poles” and as the lagoon is lined with a plastic membrane they would not be able to escape. Dave suggested that one of the rings was placed into the lagoon and that a simple ladder made from car tyres be placed in the lagoon so in the event someone should fall in and nobody noticed they would have a flotation device that they could reach and had a means of escaping from the lagoon via the car tyre ladder. When asked by the main contractor SHE advisor why he had thought of this Dave reply was that he had instigated this escape route on previous contracts but this was the first time he had received a safety award.
Congratualtion to Dave for this simple life saving suggestion.

||Stuart Group - Project Penguin
Stuart Group Ltd, a national power generating and specialist pumping company have successfully completed another major overseas contract. The project was to build a 4.5MW Containerised Diesel Engine Power Station in the Falkland Islands, a British Antarctic territory approximately 8,000 miles from Norfolk.
The Design Engineers set to work, producing detailed drawings including interfacing with a 30 year old system, a major conundrum. The devised strategy entailed the supply and modification of three 1700kVA FG Wilson Generators using Perkins engines. To give a scale of capacity, one of these, approximately the size of a double decker bus, would provide enough electricity to power around 800 houses. The unpredictable marine climate in the Falkland Islands, frequent strong gales, snow storms and sun all in a day, facilitated the need for essential adaptations to the containers. These included fitting heaters to the engines to keep the ambient temperature in the engines above 5° Celsius and the application of a specialised thick film paint system, appropriate for the salty marine environment. Special measures were taken for fuel management to avoid any adverse impact on the sensitive environment of the Island. In order to protect the containers from the elements whilst in transit they were wrapped in industrial cling film, a major feat!
Our Skilled Engineers set to work and from receipt of the components in Attleborough, delivery of completed generators to Southampton Port was just three weeks. The generators are now in their final resting place, accompanied temporarily by two Stuart Group Installation and Commissioning Engineers. Stuart Group would like to acknowledge the hard work and dedication of their team throughout this challenging venture. Stuart Group’s manufacturing facility is based in Attleborough, Norfolk and employs 65 people from the local area. They also have two Service Centres in the Midlands and Humberside.

The XH150’s have been put to use on the sites fire suppression system as pictured.

Another example of putting to use pumps which would have normally been scrapped as waste.
