All inspectors and management were very impressed with its automatic operation and gave All Pumps a huge tick of approval.

Known for their durability and reliability, our Kwikflo fire hydrant booster system and Javelin pumps are called into action at Kumtor Gold Mine.

As part of the commissioning, All Pumps service manager, Raffaele, along with another technician started the long trek from Sydney to Kyrgyzstan. They arrived in Bishkek, then travelled 6 hours up the mountains to 4150 metres above sea level. With reduced oxygen level, the task of breathing alone was an effort.

Once onsite, they complete the installation and commissioning of the clients new fire system including a 6102 turbo diesel fire hydrant, a 75kw electric sprinkler hydrant and a large Javelin 32 Jacking pump. Once the water in the pipe work had melted, they were able to start the pipe heating and fire the pumps within a day.

On the final day of commissioning, Raffaele presented and operated the system in a complete simulation of an emergency, including an emergency with a power outage. All inspectors and management were very impressed with its automatic operation and gave All Pumps a huge tick of approval. Despite the freezing temperatures and high altitude, the pump commissioning was a huge success and once again proved the reliability of our pumps.
