Site Maintenance & Equipment Hire: Hydrocarbon Recovery


Spill Response Wales was requested to attend a redevelopment site to supervise excavation works in an area of known hydrocarbon contamination and to assist the developer in the short term recovery of hydrocarbons.


A Response Team was mobilised to site with a mobile oil-water separator, pumps, pipework and an oil skimming unit to undertake excavation and recovery works. Short term product recovery works effectively removed floating hydrocarbon contamination allowing redevelopment works to progress.


Spill Response Wales was able to provide a Response Team and Equipment at short notice to mobilise to site and undertake product recovery works. These works allowed an area of known contamination to be rapidly addressed allowing redevelopment works to commence unhindered.


All works were completed during November 2010.
