Portable plants set for remediation launch

INSTRUMENTATION MANUFACTURER and supplier Geotechnical Instruments has formed a new specialist division, GeoRemediation. The move comes as a result of the company's expansion into groundwater remediation.

The team is carrying out work in contaminated groundwater, leachate and soil vapour extraction and supplies complete containerised portable remediation plants tailored to specific jobs.

It recently carried out a contract on a new city centre petrol station. Just two days before opening, one of the underground storage tanks failed during commissioning and had to be replaced. Some 10,000 litres of petrol leaked into the ground and threatened to reach the groundwater table.

Environmental consultant Delta Simons proposed a clean up solution which consisted of three boreholes, a dual phase extraction system to draw off both contaminated water and hydrocarbon vapour and control equipment housed in a fully containerised remediation and monitoring station supplied by GeoRemediation.
