Location: Central Georgia

Client: Major Power Company

Contract Amount: Confidential



PROBLEM


Remtech responded to a transformer fire/explosion in central Georgia. A bushing pole insulator shorted out causing a fire/explosion that activated the fire water deluge extinguishing system.


Debris (porcelain, paper) from the insulators was broadcast over 300 ft from transformer.  An estimated 500 gallons of dielectric fluid were released to fire containment basins, oil/water separator, power company grounds, and a detention pond.


SOLUTION


Remtech’s site remediation activities included:


‣ Removed contaminated soil without disturbing grounding grids

‣ Loaded contaminated soils into rolloffs

‣ Skimmed dielectric fluid from large detention basin

‣ Steam cleaned transformer shells and fire retention basins

‣ Cleaned in ground oil water separator

‣ 150,000 gals of fire contact water treated with mobile system

‣ Collected soil performance samples confirming cleanup  

‣ Restored power station grounds soils and gravel cover

‣ Transformer rehabilitation contractor oil releases cleaned with HC2000


COST/BENEFITS


Treatment of fire oil contact water with Remtech's mobile oil/water separator and carbon filtration system and cleanup of the transformer rehabilation contractor's mineral oil and hydraulic oil releases with Remtech's HC2000 saved the power company over $50,000.
