We were contracted to do a trial to provide the Broads Authority with evidence of our ability to dredge from one location and use our pumping system to deposit the silt at a location several hundred yards away. Click on Read More to see a video of our pumping system at work. Watch the video
Having watched the silt get deeper and deeper in our moat over a period of about 20 years I finally contacted Peter Jex in 2011. Peter came out and gave us some prliminary ideas and suggestions. I was attracted by his proposal to pump the silt from the moat and spread it evenly in a nearby wood. [Read More]
Sibelco slurry lagoon clearence
As a large Industrial Minerals company we create solids as a by product of sand washing. The solids generated from our process settles into lagoons which from time to time, require cleaning out.
Previously Sibelco has used long reach machines which can be very messy as slurries have high water content and low solids.
Four years ago Jex Plant was working at our Kings Lynn site and he indicated that he could pump out our lagoons using a novel system he had developed. [Read more]

We were particularly pleased that your method of removal did result in all of the material being accommodated in the area that we had available. [Read more]
We have recently used this team to clear, pump out and de-silt a moat/watercourse round our property. The location and immediate environment presented difficulties of access for heavy machinery (eg JCB) and silt pumping seemed to afford the least damaging option .
They first came with equipment and an inflatable and made a comprehensive survey on which they based charges. [Read more]

Now the work on our pond is successfully completed, we wanted to thank you properly for your help. You have transformed an ugly sludge-filled, mosquito ridden eyesore into a water feature which, once it is planted up, will be a real asset to our gardens. Already we can see the difference you have made to the outlook from the house over the pond and the weir. [Read more]

Historically speaking, movement of silt from the lagoons would normally be carried out by way of load and haul practices. Moblie plant requiremnets for such an operation are Excavator and three articulated dumpers. Using load and haul techniques for silt movement has in the past raised cost, environmental and safety issues and as such a new approach was sought. [Read more]
