High-tech firm helps club 'prepare for the unthinkable'

High-tech firm helps club 'prepare for the unthinkable'

Pump Technology has been in existence for 25 years and supply pumps for wastewater disposal.  Their unique equipment is used in all seven Astute submarines built in Barrow in Furness.  They also supply pumping equipment for UK leading manufacturers including Marks and Spencer, Tesco and Greggs.

Clive Vare, Project Manager for Pump Technology said: “Our firm made contact with Ullswater Yacht Club after one of their members telephoned our firm for advice.  We were sad to hear of the severe flooding which Storm Desmond caused to the area and were happy to offer our assistance.  Hopefully the area will not be affected by flooding again, but should this happen our Flood Emergency Kit will certainly be of immense value.”

The Flood Emergency Kit has kindly been donated to UYC by Pump Technology and should an emergency flooding situation arise will enable members to react quickly to tackle the problem. The kit, which can be easily stored, comes in a carrying case, which acts as a filter, and quickly pumps water out of a building via the fire hose.

Peter Lewis, Commodore of Ullswater Yacht Club said: "We are extremely grateful to Pump Technology for kindly donating the Flood Emergency Kit. If the area is again hit by flooding our members can use the kit to fight back and limit damage and recover quickly. The kit can also be used for other purposes including getting rid of excess water in boats at risk of sinking.”
