About Khansaheb Sykes
Based in the UAE, the Khansaheb Sykes operations team has almost 40 years’ experience in groundwater control and general pumping applications. Today, this long-term specialist local dewatering knowledge distinguishes us from the competition.
Set up in 1976 following our dewatering support to Costain International on the Shindegah Tunnel Crossing of the Dubai Creek, Khansaheb Sykes has grown to become the leading provider of professional dewatering and pumping services throughout the United Arab Emirates.
Under a joint venture with Khansaheb Civil Engineering L.L.C., Khansaheb Sykes was created as a specialised dewatering contractor and pumping equipment supplier for a broad range of pumping applications including: building and construction ground water control, testing and cleaning pipework within petrochemical operations and supporting regional water companies and local municipalities in pumping sewage and waste water. We have also been involved with dewatering of major national port infrastructure projects including Jebel Ali Port and Dubai Dry Docks.
Khansaheb Sykes is a subsidiary of Andrews Sykes Group, the UK’s largest specialist hire company. Our business is founded on the unrivalled expertise and know-how of building and operating Sykes Pumps, which celebrated its 150th anniversary in 2007.
With operations and maintenance departments in Sharjah, Dubai and Abu Dhabi, we have 60+ dedicated employees.
Our hire and sales fleet covers both diesel and electric units, in bore sizes from 50mm to 300mm diameter.
The bulk of the fleet is based on fully automatic self-priming general-purpose pumpsets.
We also offer a complete range of accessories and ancillary equipment.
In addition, new dewatering pump sets and accessories are available for purchase.
We also own and operate four drilling rigs, for exclusive use in dewatering operations.
Service and maintenance
We provide a comprehensive emergency back-up service, covering both hire and sale equipment, with a huge spares holding and high quality workshop repair facilities, plus mobile service engineers based in Sharjah, Dubai and Abu Dhabi.
