Pructon were contracted to remove sludge and decontaminate the Stokes Hill fuel farm. The fuel storage tanks had contaminated sludge within seven 38 metre diameter fuel storage tanks. Our scope of works included the safe opening and entry of the tanks, removal of the contaminated sludge and cleaning the internal floor and wall surfaces with high pressure water. The work was undertaken within a hazardous area. A detailed safety management plan was prepared, strictly adhering to a high level of safety. Safety equipment included full body protection from contaminants and personnel breathing apparatus. All work was well planned, completed well ahead of schedule and with no safety incidents recorded.
