Schwing Stetter pumps over 1.3 km

Schwing Stetter pumps over 1.3 kmA Schwing Stetter SP3500 pump has successfully pumped concrete over 1.3km as part of London's Crossrail project.

The contractor, Kelly Formwork were using a different pump but were having trouble with the cleaning out process and asked Scwing Stetter (UK) for help. Schwing Stetter proved an SP3500 and also a SP2800 as a spare and Kelly Formwork reached the end of the tunnel, pumping concrete through over 1.3km of pipe.

Whilst this isn't a record (Schwing Stetter pumps have pumped much further than this is other projects) it is a notable achievement here in the UK.
