Difficult Drafting Made Easy

Pump-crane-engine package makes water more accessible

Williams Fire & Hazard Control’s latest development in submersible pump systems played a key role in an elaborate drafting exercise to support the company’s Big Gun demonstrations at the annual XTREME Industrial Fire & Hazard Training in May.

The new Dependapower package includes dual submersible pumps, a Palfinger 9001-EH wireless remote control deployment crane and a Caterpillar C9 diesel engine rated at 375 horsepower, all combined in one transportable unit, said WF&HC emergency response and training director Chauncey Naylor.

“It’s something we’ve been looking at for a long time,” he said. “Nobody has built anything like this suitable for our use so we built our own.”

Large volumes of water are usually the most critical resource in firefighting. However, water is not always readily accessible, particularly when the fire pump is greatly elevated above the water level.  Dependapower moves water in difficult drafting situations where a conventional fire pump is limited.
