I received a call from a local quarry operator who had lost the main submersible pump to keep the water levels down. Vandals had cut the supporting cables and instrumention mounts rendering everything both nonfunctional but also unable to be recovered to repair it.
A big recovery such as this requires some specialised equipment, good training and a buddy! Fortunately we did not need to go searching for this 2,000 pound piece of equipment since the cut cable lead us right to the pump in the 1 meter visibility water. In the above photo you can see the hook on the crane that was used to lift it out.
Start to finish the recovery took a little over 2 hours. Savings to the Operator close to $12,000.
No job too big!
