Rescue 2 - Removal of blockage from live wet well

Rescue 2 have recently been highly praised for their work on a complex project at a large Water Treatment plant on the South Coast.

A large piece of scaffolding had collapsed over time with the flow of sewage, and fallen loose into the live wet well.

There was a real danger of the scaffolding causing serious damage to the penstock and screener, which would have effectively put the well our of use, and cost a considerable amount of money to repair.

Rescue 2 provided and 5 man rescue team, and an additional two rescue operatives who have had specialist cutting experience.   The two operatives entered the live well on harnesses and safety lines, and were suspended safely over the live inlet. Using reciprocating saws and disk cutters, they cut away and secured the scaffolding ready for removal.

Using ropes and hoists, the scaffold was safely removed, much to the delight and relief of the client who left this glowing testimonial for the team involved:

“I just wanted to drop you a quick line to thank the team from Rescue 2 for the excellent work carried out today, removing the scaffold crash barriers.  The team worked safely and efficiently and exceeded both mine and the end client’s expectations. The client was gobsmacked when I informed him that both sides were complete by 1pm!  He has also asked me to pass on his thanks for what you did today.
Not only have you ensured that the south screen has been able to be put back into service today, ensuring that we met our contractual /programme obligations with the Water Authority, you have saved us a significant expense by avoiding the need to install complex scaffolding.  This is a fitting end to all your past months works on this site.  Thankyou.”
