Temporary pumps 5/06/2018

 

Fire 19/06/2018

Due to an unforeseen event the storm water pumps at a municipal pump location were out of order. The pump station covers a large agriculture area and because of the heavy rainfall is an immediate risk of flooding. Two brand new “out of the box” vacuum assisted BBA BA150E with VFD drive combined with two booster pumps are capable of pumping 2 x 750m3/hr. at a discharge pressure of well over 30 meters. The VFD’s combined with pressure transducers makes the temporary pump-station fully automatic and is also equipped with an alarm control unit.   It can be hard to explain to relatives what pump rental really means and in what line of field we are actually operating. The locations and applications where a pump is required even keeps us surprised at times. Here we showcase two 160kW diesel engines in the range of 130m3/hr x 13Bar to 350m3/hr at 5Bar being deployed at a testing facility in Spain. This testing facility is equipped with a full scale tunnel model were fire and ventilation situations are being simulated. Our pumps were used to feed a specific piping network inside the tunnel. This network is equipped with different nozzle’s that create a mist which is intended to rapidly kill a fire

Unexpected visitor 2/05/2018

 

New order 17/05/2018

In the early hours during an offshore decommissioning project we welcomed an unexpected visitor. A common grey harbor seal found a perfect spot for a nice sunbathing session.  Two 65Kw submersible pumps are discharging well over 600m³/hr. up to a 30 meter elevated platform. On the platform a diesel driven booster pump was installed to boost the 600m³/hr. to 11Bar. All equipment was delivered in DNV certified lifting frames and were inspected by a third party prior to delivery.   One of the largest Belgium contractors for international pipeline projects recently acquired 5 new pumps. Rental Pumps Belgium (BBA dealer Belgium) was granted the order for 5 x BBA B100K with Hatz DriveOn® engines. The B100K is a dry self-priming multipurpose sewage and dewatering pump. With a solids handling of 82mm there is no risk of clogging even in the dirtiest sewage systems. The high-end sound attenuated canopy allow the pumps to be used in dense populated areas. And off course the pumps were delivered in the custom company colours.

BBA BA150E 22/02/2018

 

Low temperature 7/03/2018

With our well-equipped 4x4 service vehicles we can reach any remote and/or inaccessible location ourselves. Here our service team makes a special delivery right to where the equipment is needed. Needless to say we assisted in the install of this 6” BBA BA150E diesel driven pump. Nice, quick and easy!   Harsh low temperature conditions last week during offshore trials. While looking very frosty on the outside, the pump is still functional. Even though temperatures are rising again, always be on the lookout for frost damage. There are two options to prevent frost damage, drain the pumps or keep them running!

Keep it dry 8/02/2018

 

Maintenance 1/02/2018

Shipping is one of the main ways of transportation in Europe. In order to accommodate Vb class ships (190 meter long x 11,4meter wide) the so called  “Maasroute” needed attention.  Along the entire route there are several sections that are too narrow for these ships and therefor need broadening.   Here we showcase one of our 6” diesel driven BBA BA150E pumps keeping the work area inside the cofferdam safe and dry.  The work area (over 300 meters) is located well over six meters below the level of the canal. Because of this potential danger the pump is equipped with an SMS alarm module as well as an acoustic signal. In case of malfunction of the pump or access waterflow all whistles go off to notify the workers inside the cofferdam.   In a German stone quarry a diesel driven pressure pump is used to discharge the rainwater from a 14km2 area.  The 160kW diesel driven pump is capable of pumping well over 200m³/hr. at 125meters lift. Here our engineers are performing a routine maintenance check of the equipment. With our well-equipped off the road service vehicles we are able to service our and your equipment anywhere everywhere.

140kW Sulzer XFP 12/01/2018

 

On the shore of Calais 15/12/2017

In the municipal water treatment facility in the town of Hamme Belgium, the storm water pumps were outdated and in poor condition. Rental Pumps Belgium was contacted to supply a temporary pump station capable of pumping 2m³/sec. over 360 meter distance. One of the difficulties was to install the 1000mm diameter steel discharge line through rough and almost inaccessible terrain. The 140kW Sulzer XFP pump was equipped with a frequency converter for automated operations. After a short installation time the treatment facility was again ready for the worst possible weather.   On the shores of the beaches in Calais France, our equipment is used at several reclamation projects. This sound attenuated diesel driven high-pressure pump is feeding the Hydraulic Vibroflot crane in the background. Hydraulic Vibroflot is a soil compacting method often used in reclamation projects. Our pump is capable of pumping 250 m³/hr. at 8 bar and gets it’s water from our other pumps that are located kilometres away.

New bridge 1/12/2017

 

 

 

 

"New" Pump 23/11/2017

It’s always an impressive sight to see a new bridge being transported towards its permanent location. But when you take the dimensions of 170 x 15 x 29 meters and a weight of more than 3000ton into consideration it’s even more impressive. Rental Pumps supplied the ballasting system for the final leg of the operation, the travers over the canal and the final positioning of the bridge. The ballasting system consisted out of a total of 8 diesel driven pumps ranging from 250m³/hr. to 400m³/hr. and were used on the barge as can be seen in the time-lapse video.   Rental Pumps can be your partner for pump repair, routine maintenance, and complete pump overhaul. Being brand-independently we service all kind of pumps in our professional and well-equipped workshops. As specialists, we know how a fleet of pumps should be maintained and repaired as efficiently as possible. The “before and after” picture is from a 110kW high head SS316 pump that is completely overhauled. The pump is also fitted with the proper SS316 reducers to meet customers’ requirements. Next week the pump will be installed for a 12-month rental period at a large industrial refinery.

 

Save the fish 10/11/2017

 

Rental Pumps in Spain 16/11/2017

Today we received an unusual environmental emergency call out from the local authorities of the picturesque town of Woudrichem. In one of the many ponds and moats the fish were close to dying due to a low oxygen level in the water. When the oxygen level is critically low, the fish come to the surface and literally gasp for air. Rental Pumps delivered and installed a diesel driven high-pressure pump capable of pumping 130m³/hr. at 6Bar. By discharging the water with force into the air, oxygen is being brought back into the water. Luckily this unusual use of our equipment gave immediate result and saved the fish from dying.   At Rental Pumps we deliver direct pumping solutions throughout Europe. In the beautiful town of Bilbao Spain, Rental Pumps performed yet another large ballasting operation. Our ballast engineers were on site for the preparations and operation of a mobile ballasting system. The system consisted of no less than 14 pumps, all capable of pumping 400m³/hr maximum. The cargo consisted of various offshore sub-station components. Due to the odd sizing, local bad weather and rapid tidal changes this was once again a challenging job. Needless to say, we concluded this job safely and on time!

ATEX part 2 6/10/2017

 

Working together 2/11/2017

At the Pumps & Valves fair from 4-5 October we proudly introduced our latest addition to the ATEX pumping equipment range. The stainless-steel 4” BBA B100 self-priming waste water pump comes with full ATEX zone 1 certification on the pump-unit with additional safety features for guarding e.g. bearing temperature, mechanical seal failure, fluid temperature, pump case fluid level etc. These details make the units unique in the pump rental market. Often seen in the market is a certification on part level instead of per complete unit or a lack of important safety features. All stainless-steel pumps have Viton elastomers and non-static hoses, suitable for a variety of chemical polluted fluids. Due to the above-mentioned features and obvious build quality we received very good feedback from the expert visitors during the fair.
  Pipelines are regularly cleaned to ensure that operators can maintain their product specifications. The results off the pipeline cleaning techniques are evident from internal pipeline inspections, improved product quality and increased flow rates. Rental Pumps, her partner All Liquids Piping and Spill Control Rental delivered a complete pumping station which consisted out of pumps, certified piping and hoses, fuel tanks, storage tanks, filtration units and spill containment systems.   This synergetic solution is capable of safely pumping 200m³/hr. at 38Bar through the 60-kilometer-long 10” pipeline to get the inspection pig from A to B. Nice detail: the starting point is in Belgium and the receiving end is in the Netherlands.

Because of its excellent sound attenuation, the pump can easily be used in dense populated areas.   Rental Pumps at boot K107 in AHOY Rotterdam. A succesful fair where we were able to meet our customers.

Precious Cargo 11/07/2017

 

Challenging Job 7/08/2017

Once again, the Rental Pumps ballast pumps in action! This time, 6 diesel driven BBA BA150E pumps were put into action to assist in the transportation of a precious cargo. By pumping water out of the floating barge, it can be raised in order to handle the increased load of the cargo while it’s entering the barge. Several large Dutch heavy lift transportation companies rely time and time again on the quality and expertise of Rental Pumps.   It’s a known fact that Rental Pumps is the preferred rental company for ballasting operations. Below we highlight one of the biggest ballasting operations we have done so far. The aim was to load not one, but two offshore jackets in a 12-days period with a restricted time frame of only 4 days between the two. We advised, transported and installed well over 20.000 m3/hr. pumping power in a demanding environment with tight time schedules and limited space. All jackets where loaded onto their barges in time and all demands were met. A “big thank you” to all parties involved for this challenging job.

High speed service 20/03/2017

 

New Atex equipment 8/01/2017

On a random Thursday at 14:00 PM the operators of a medium sized municipal treatment plant noticed a failure in their main-pump. The pump had to be replaced but no spare pump was at hand. At 15:00 PM a Rental Pumps representative was on site to discuss the possibilities. Minimum 750 m3/h, Maximum 22kW, limited space, predefined flange connections and last but not least: ASAP!
Our engineers installed a temporary rental pump and the treatment plant was up and running in no time. A textbook example of the Rental Pumps service.
  The demand for special and high-end equipment is growing fast over the last few years. To meet the requirements of our customers the Rental Pumps Group invested in ATEX certified electrical driven submersible pumps.

Toyo order 20/10/2016

 

One stop shop 16/11/2016

Toyo dealer Rental Pumps Belgium was awarded a big order for wear proof pumping equipment. The order consisted out of extra heavy duty DP, heavy duty GR submersible pumps and VH booster pumps. A sub-division of de renowned Jan de Nul Group that specializes in deep trench excavation placed the order. During the deep trench excavation works, the trenches are filled with a water/bentonite mixture to prevent collapsing of the trench. This abrasive mixture needs to be pumped to and from different trenches and recycling units. Because of the wear proof characteristics these pumps are the best choice for this application.   At a plastic injection molding factory, the fire-fighting storage tank was in need of maintenance. Rental Pumps supplied an electric driven fire-fight pump and our partner All Liquids Piping provided a 70m³ temporary liquid storage tank. The system is monitored by Rental Pumps telemetry with an auto start function, the pump will start in case there is a need for firewater. A perfect example of the synergy of the Rental Pumps Group; pumps, pipe systems and storage tanks. A true one stop shop.

Offshore job 7/09/2016

 

Petrochemical plant 16/08/2016

Rental Pumps is an important supplier to the offshore industries. That's a well known fact. Here we showcase a successful executed rental job in an extraordinary offshore surrounding. For the Allseas’ Pioneering Spirit Rental Pumps was selected to assist in the engineering, selecting and delivery of the pumping equipment used for the harbor trials and offshore trails. On a side note, in 2014 Rental Pumps rented out pumping equipment for the testing and commissioning of the hydraulic lifting beams, and in 2015 we delivered on numerous occasions the needed heavy lifting ballasting equipment for the outfitting of the vessel.

 

 

At a large petrochemical plant, a storage tank needed urgent maintenance. Large quantities of sediment inside the tank caused the entire system to malfunction. Our client, an industrial cleaner, had a bald idea to hot-tap the storage tank and install a 240kW diesel driven pump to get the job done. The pump, capable of pumping 600m³/Hr. x 10Bar, stirred up the sediment so it could be pumped out to a nearby treatment facility. Our pump ran continuously 24/7 for a period of 4 months, needless to say it ran without any problem.

We are proud to introduce to you the Rental Pumps Netherlands service team. The silent heroes who on a day to day base make the impossible possible. Our service team takes pride and joy in their work and are responsible for the excellent technical condition of our equipment. Whenever your rented pump is running smooth again - got the job done the first time or helped you catch that important deadline - you know whom to thank!

 

 

After another successful job our equipment is ready to return to our head office. The equipment was used in a ballast/transport operation of the topside offshore structure in the background of the picture. A total of 9 diesel driven pumps of each 250m³/hr. were delivered to the shipyard where the topside structure was constructed. Our equipment was used for the transfer from the production facility onto the floating barge for further transport to its final destination.

 

Stone Quarry 29/04/2016

 

Dutch scenery 21/02/2016

A German stone quarry needed to discharge a large amount of water from their worksite. The water, partial ground water, but mostly rainwater is collected at the deepest point of the quarry. Due to the large depth of over 100 meters a high pressure pump was needed to pump out the water to a nearby river. Here we showcase one of our diesel driven pumps capable of pumping out 300m³/hr. at 120mwc. Rental Pumps arranged the transportation to the site and our experienced service team maintained the equipment on site.

 

 

In this Dutch scenery Rental Pumps transported, installed, commissioned and maintained an electrical driven temporary pump station of 2400m³/hr. x 4 mtr lift. The temporary pump station is bypassing an outdated pump station and is equipped with multiple frequency controlled pumps which maintain a preset level. Due to the changing global conditions and the constant battle against water in the Netherlands the upscaling of pump stations to meet current specifications are becoming a frequent necessity. The surrounding inhabitants and the contractor all rely on the quality of our equipment.

 

Toyo VH-A 2/03/2016

 

In excellent condition 16/02/2016

As one of the leading pump rental companies in the Netherlands and Belgium we know our way with submersible pumps. For abrasive slurry applications we rely on Toyo submersible pumps in our rental fleet. As the exclusive dealer for the Belgium market and the Netherlands we display the Toyo VH-A pump. This special type is designed with three outlets for pumping and mixing operations. These models can transport heavy slurries with densities of at least 1.25kg/dm3 and can handle solids contents reaching 55% by weight. Here we advised and supplied a Toyo VHA pump to a Belgium cement/stone factory.

 

 

As expected from a professional pump rental company, Rental Pumps carries out her own maintenance. We not only maintain our own pump fleet but also offer this service to customers. With our in house knowledge and well equipped workshops, complete with spray-paint booth, we can offer a complete overhaul. Here we showcase one of our 3” diesel driven BBA B70-MP30 pumps after a complete overhaul. This pump is 12 years old and after a complete overhaul looks like it has left the factory only yesterday. With an output of over 50m3/hr. and low weight it is still the GO-TO pump of many contractors.

 

Ballast Pumps 15/12/2015

 

Fire fight Pump 11/12/2015

Here we showcase 8 x 6” diesel driven BBA BA150E pumps in use at a ballasting operation. Our pumps are capable of delivering well over 400m³/hr., and are an essential part of this ballasting operation. The pumps are being used to raise or lower the barge by pumping water in or out of the barge. In this way the barge can be levelled to the key even when the heavy load is being transported on or off the barge.

 

 

One of our specialisms is to deliver, install and maintain custom temporary firefighting units. In this industrial environment we used a 450kW diesel driven pump capable of pumping 800m³/hr. at 140mwk. We also delivered measuring equipment for the pressure drop auto start function, external 3000ltr. fuel tank and priming pump. Together with our partner All Liquids Piping we installed the certified hoses and accessories. All the certified items are delivered with QR quick scan codes so the customer can easily check the validation of each certifcate.

 

Gabon 2/12/2015

 

 

Here we showcase one of our diesel driven pressure pumps on a job site in Gabon delivering 250m³/hr. at 8 Bar. A large Dutch contractor chose the reliable and quality equipment of Rental Pumps instead of local sources. At this dredging application we feed the dredging pump with jet water in order to get the right mixture of sand and water. High temperatures, salt water and abrasive sand are tough conditions for every pumps.
