Construction plant apprentices studying at NSCG’s brand new Skills and Innovation Centre at Stafford College will get hands-on experience using an S100 solids handling pump from Selwood.
The S100 is used to safely handle water containing sewage and solid waste and is commonly used by contractors working in utility and construction projects. Fitted with SelWatch, Selwood’s remote cloud-based telematics tool, the pump allows real-time performance monitoring without the need to travel to site, keeping track of fuel levels, performance and maintenance requirements.
Being able to use this equipment and technology will allow apprentices studying at Stafford College to gain hands-on experience with industry-standard kit ensuring they leave with a good understanding of a wide range of construction machinery.
“We’re proud of Selwood’s long-standing links with NSCG, where we have mentored dozens of students and supported many with apprenticeship placements over the years,” said Reece Edwards, Head of Product and Service Excellence at Selwood.
“The College’s work aligns perfectly with Selwood’s approach to educating young people about our industry and helping to give them a head start when beginning their careers.”
Through its mutually beneficial partnership, Selwood and NSCG have worked together for more than 20 years, and in that time have nurtured dozens of construction plant workers, many of which have continued their careers with the pump solutions company.
