Suffolk: Water jettinig group IWJS to invest �2m-plus in fleet upgrade
SUFFOLK-based water jetting company IWJS is investing more than �2million in upgrading its vehicle fleet.
Three new specialist sewer cleaning vehicles have arrived at the company’s headquarters at Woolpit, with a further convoy due to arrive in the next two weeks.
The initial delivery consisted of one JHL 415 SuperFlex and two JHL 312 RECylers.
The SuperFlex unit offers high-pressure jetting and vacuum lifting, with additional pumps enabling the vehicle to lift waste from a greater depth and at a faster rate.
The RECycler is a flexible high-tech vehicle, developed for carrying out heavy duty jetting jobs in which the jetting water is continuously recycled, dramatically cutting down on the quantity of water used.
Besides the obvious environmental benefits of reduced water use this technology allows the vehicle to remain on site fully operational for longer periods reducing vehicle carbon emissions by reducing driving hours.
All three vehicles were built on Mercedes-Benz chassis to IWJS’s specifications enhancing by JHL, a leading manufacturer of sewer cleaning vehicles which has been supplying IWJS companies for many years.
