Remtech provides energy power generating, transmission, and substation utilities with: emergency response to spills, fires, explosions, storms; environmental assessments and response plans; environmental remediation; comprehensive industrial services, pollution prevention systems, and comprehensive waste management programs.

Transformer fires and explosions at power plants and substations result in dielectric fluids broadcast over fire walls, sound attenuation barriers, power generating surfaces, and spill containment/fire extinguishment pits. Storms result in power outages, downed pole mounted transformers, and dammage to electrical equipment.  Remtech has developed and implemented specialized response and remediation programs for transformer fires and explosions at electrical substations and power generating facilities.

Remtech’s emergency response and steam/surface cleaning services restore facilities to pre-fire condition. Remtech’s mobile oil/water separator/carbon filtration plants treat fire deluge water for release to stormwater detention ponds minimizing liquid disposal volumes.

Remtech’s proprietary biostimulation accelerator HC-2000 product is used to degrade residual soil contamination in and below grounding grids and remove photolytic mineral oil staining from gravel. HC-2000's application to power plant and downed transformers is presented in Remtech Bioremediation Optimization Primer for the power industry starting on page section 4.3.  HC-2000 is a Green Sustainable Technology product.  HC-2000 is also approved on a case-by-case basis by EPA OCSs for in situ treatment of large volumes of petroleum contact water.

Energy Facility Spill Deployment and Facility Response Plans have been prepared for worst case release scenarios for power generating facilities with ASTs. Completed plans include the Savannah River and Chattahoochee River basins with combined drainage areas of 72,650 acres and 1,180 miles of shoreline. Spill containment, protection, recovery, access points (boat ramps & bridges), and sensitive receptors (including water intake structures, fisheries, and marinas) were visited, photographed with GPS tags and entered into a GPS aerial mapping system. Containment, recovery, and temporary storage equipment are specified for each control point and entered into a digitized rapid deployment management system to access, direct, and deploy appropriate resources.
