New Pump Out in Weymouth Ready for the Olympics
Published on 28/6/2012
British Marine Federation (BMF) member LeeSan, Warwickshire based world leaders in pump out equipment, has just installed and commissioned a new Pump Out Facility in Weymouth Harbour ready for the influx of boats visiting the town for the Olympic Sailing Events.
The brick pump and hose houses have been cleaned out, refurbished and fitted with new security doors. In one the company has installed a hose hanger and 20m of tough, specialist pump out hose along with appropriate valves and also rinse out facilities. In the other they have installed a brand new, powerful and reliable LeeStrom LS30T Peristaltic pump. This service is manned and operated by Weymouth harbour staff.
On the Environmental front, LeeSan report that they are now supplying a growing number of “Dual Function” stand alone pump out units. In addition to the obvious black water pumping facility, these units LS160WB and LS400WB also feature full bilge pump out function via a suction pump and stainless steel probe with a built in micro filter. Oily bilge water is collected in a separate tank for ecologically sound disposal at a later date, or in some cases for the oil to be recovered using a separation process.
This service enables boats to maintain a clean bilge, while saving the fragile marine environment from the damage caused by the discharge of oil or diesel fuel residue.
LeeSan design and manufacture their own equipment in association with their International partner LeeStrom. They also offer consultation, design, installation and maintenance for this type of equipment in marinas all over the world.
