Contract Amount: $80,000


PROBLEM


A lubricant formulating plant engaged Remtech for a Tanker Loading Rack

with Fall Protection and secondary containment.  Tasks included design,

permiting, secondary containment, moving underground transfer lines

into secondary containment concrete trenches, providing construction

management, and installing an oil/water separator for loading

finished product tankers. Remtech also prepared SPCC and FRP plans

and trained plant personnel.


SOLUTION


A lubricant facility purchased a pre-fabricated loading rack and new oil/

water separator that were too large for the small plant site. Remtech

had to obtain building offset variances from the City and Architectural

Review Boards. Remtech attended public hearings to gain local

acceptance of the proposed design and variances.


Three dimensional modeling was performed to provide adequate

tanker turning radiuses, clearances for tanker undercarriages with

rollover spill containment/clean stormwater diversion transitions, and

level tankers to align with two hydraulically operated gantries. Rollover

spill containment transitions also diverted clean stormwater around

loading rack operation contact areas.


An above ground stormwater detention basin (placed under the

backside of the rack canopy) was designed to satisfy permitting

requirements and fit within the limited space. Remtech also designed

safety and fire prevention systems that were required to obtained

permits from local fire authorities.


Remtech designed a concrete trench with metal H20 load grates

crossing the plant entrance road to move existing underground

transfer lines into a secondary containment structure draining to the

canopy sump. An existing AST tank farm oil water separator (OWS)

was modified to accept tank farm and loading rack contact water that

was discharged to the sanitary sewer under an existing wastewater

pretreatment permit. This replaced an $80,000 in ground oil/water

separator that was originally planned by the client.


A SPCC plan was prepared and FRP plan updated and plant

personal were trained by Remtech


COST/BENEFITS


This structure could not have been built without variances obtained by Remtech through the public

hearing and City review and permitting process. Remtech saved the client the cost of a new underground

$80,0000 OWS that would have required a larger stormwater detention facility due to additional land

disturbance areas. Due to limited space on this site, a permit most likely could not have obtained

with additional space requirements of an in ground OWS.
