Mega pump installation in Swarkestone

maris-pumps-case-study-10-3A request came in from a local quarry to replace their old hire pumps by purchasing a new electric submersible pump to be used to transfer water as part of their sand production process.

The Maris Pumps team were on hand to help and recommended a 90kW Grindex Mega N pump. Initially installing a pump from our hire fleet to prove to the end user we could increase flow and pressure while reducing their current power consumption we were quickly asked to provide a sale item.



Maris Pumps Sponsor – Rother Valley Training Group

Maris Pumps have been proud to sponsor us, the Rother Valley Training Group. (RVTG) has been training Newfoundland dogs for over 15 years. We train our dogs in water rescue and draught (carting), and have some of the best working dogs in the country.

Newfoundlands are strong dogs, with excellent stamina and endurance. They can tow heavy loads in carts on land, as well as towing boats and people in water. They have webbed feet, jowls which help them breathe while swimming, and a double-coat which keeps their skin dry, all of which means they are strong swimmers able to cope with very cold temperatures.

We are part of the Northern Newfoundland Club. Our members are involved in all sorts of activities including raising awareness of the breed, fundraising for Newfoundland welfare, and welcoming and supporting newcomers to Newfoundland training. We have an excellent demonstration team which is proud to be sponsored by Maris Pumps.

Silver Ski Rocket Oliver Greenwood, rode through the opposition to win the British U-19 Championship at Kent Speedway’s Central Park venue in Sittingbourne.

The teenager reeled off five straight victories to claim the title with a 15 point maximum, a point clear of British U-21 winner Josh Bates and two of Jack Kingston.

He had to work hard at various points along the way, though, starting with his opening ride success over both those challengers in Heat 4 when he trapped in front from the outside and retained his advantage despite a blanket finish. He also came out on top in an epic duel with former British U-16 Champion Nathan Greaves in Heat 9 that ended when his rival overcooked the final bend and fell, nearly taking Greenwood with him.

Greenwood’s other victories were more straightforward, with his last in Heat 18 wrapping up the title and starting a night of celebration.

Rye House team manager John Sampford was quick to offer his congratulations on behalf of the club. “We’re absolutely delighted for Ollie. Tonight, he delivered on the rich potential that we know he possesses.

“You can’t do more than beating everyone that is put in front of you. Realistically, there were three other riders who had a realistic chance of winning the title, but when he defeated two of them in Heat 4, it dictated much of the tone for the rest of the meeting.”

Greenwood now has the opportunit

y to complete a unique double when he bids for further success, in his dual 

guise with the Coventry Storm, in the National League Riders’ Championship (sponsored by Paradise Wildlife Park) at Rye House on Sunday, September 28th (2pm start). 
Congratulations, Ollie!

Here’s an update from Ollie on his season so far…

The season is just starting to get under-way and as usual the bad and cold weather returns, although first few meetings haven’t suffered too badly with it only one getting abandoned due to the weather. I’ve had both my press and practices with photos and on track practice for the fans and my first premier league meeting was 18/03/14 at Peterborough v Rye house and I scored 4+1 from 4 rides which was a decent start with it being the first meeting and being race rusty.

My next fixture was the was the following Friday (21/03/14) at Coventry against Cradley Heathens which was my first national League match which I scored a maximum of 6 points from 2 rides but then the match was abandoned due too the track conditions which was getting worse as the races went on , my next fixture came the next day Saturday (22/03/14) at Leicester with me riding for Peterborough in Premier league in a Interleague competition as Leicester are In the Elite League and I scored 8 Points from 4 rides which I was happy with my performance considering my average I have to start on in the league is 3 points.

Next match was at Peterborough against Plymouth (25/03/14) and had a good night scoring 5+2 from my first 3 rides but then disaster struck when the floods lights at the stadium wouldn’t stay on due to an electrical fault under the track that the track staff couldn’t fix immediately so this meeting also got abandoned.

So all in all my season has started quite well and is very promising and a good start to build on for the rest of the year!
