This morning Hydro Cleansing Limited held a very successful HGV Cycle Awareness training session for all drivers, operational staff and Directors.
The session was delivered at 7am by Sergeant Simon Castle from the Metropolitan Police ‘Exchanging Places’ scheme at their premises HCL
House, Beddington Farm Road, Croydon. In attendance were Chris Snelling (head of Urban Logistic and Regional Policy) from the Freight Transport Association, Jack Semple from the Road Haulage Association and Tom Brake (MP).
Hydro Cleansing are supporting over the next 3 days, three Exchanging Places’ scheme sessions by lending to the MET Police several of their HGV Vehicles. This reinforces Hydro Cleansing’s policy of taking cyclists in London safety very seriously following death of 6 cyclists in 13 days.
Hydro Cleansing Limited are pleased to announce that we have received the Award in the SME category of the Sutton Business Awards on the 14th November 2013.
Carol and Steve Hoad would like to thank all of you who have passed on their congratulations and as the South East leading Environmental and Industrial service provider if we can assist call us 0208 689 3339.
Over the past few weeks you can’t have escaped the press coverage that has surrounded the now infamous fatberg lurking under Kingston, southwest London. If you have then you’ve most probably been hiding down a sewer yourself! The supposed ‘bus sized’ fatberg could have potentially pushed raw sewage up into homes and onto the streets of Kingston but how has this been allowed to happen?
Weighing in at a reported 15 tonnes this mount of congealed fat, oil and grease mixed with other revolting waste products was brought to the attention of local water authorities after local residents complained about having difficulty flushing their toilets. But how can its weight have been calculated when it hadn’t even been removed. Surely the actual weight of a fatberg cannot be decided properly until the job is complete?
Subject to contrary belief we believe the fatberg is yet to be fully removed and in fact weighs a lot less than 15 tonne. Without the necessary equipment and technical know-how the removal of this particular fatberg will take a lot longer than expected, all the while still causing problems for local residents. Time and investment are an essential requirement when it comes to preparing yourself to undertake such specialist works. Megatron is a textbook example of this.
Megatron was commissioned back in 2008 when Hydro Cleansing invested over half a million pounds engineering this wastewater monster to our own personal spec. From our perspective we had three main objectives we wanted to achieve:
- Increase the capability of a single onsite vehicle, which also reduces our environmental impact and carbon footprint
- Cope with the inevitable migration from planned to reactive works
- Time efficiency, reducing job turnaround times
With Megatron now undertaking works that were previously relinquished, and with more units in the pipeline, Hydro Cleansing are more than capable of embarking on any major works or specialist projects all the while alleviating any concerns that the job is to big or can’t be done at all.
