Cambridge based Scudamores provides punts for hire on the river Camb. Boats that are moored at the three sites eventually fill with river and rain water, and become littered with leaves, paper and debris. Until recently this all had to be laboriously bailed out by hand.
Morclean was approached by James Scudamore to provide a solution to this problem, and subsequently designed and supplied several specialist vacuum units. The vacuum system provided removes all the water from the craft, and separates the debris, leaves and paper into a special filter. The machines then discharge all the clean river water, minus the debris, back into the river.
