EnviroServ was tasked with the cleaning of underwater storage tanks on the Petro SA Orca Oil Rig at the Port of Ngqura in the Eastern Cape. Petro SA needed a reliable, environmentally conscious waste management provider and with its reputation, EnviroServ was trusted with successful completion of the task.
Once a permit had been obtained from Petro SA, gas tests were conducted, and the customer was supplied with a record of all tests in the applicable tanks which were to be worked on. EnviroServ issued all internal EWM permits for all activities during the project, which included vacuuming, pump transfer, confined space entry, working at heights and all set up work. EnviroServ prevented the possibility of product leaks by placing all hose and sleeve ends in drip trays. General, petroleum and hydrocarbon vacuuming was done in accordance with the law. The customer was provided with a weighbridge certificate and a waste disposal manifest as proof of disposal, as required by the waste legislation.
The tank was cleaned to the desired level of cleanliness, a final gas test conducted and a gas free certificate issued. As a partner in reliable waste management solutions, with an established track record, EnviroServ provided the customer with peace of mind knowing that all waste was handled according to legislation.
