Veolia, has extended the capabilities of its Industrial Site Services (ISS) team with the introduction of the latest vehicle technologies. By limiting any process downtime these will also help industrial sites to boost cost-efficient productivity.
Designed to tackle complex site process cleaning projects in sectors such as petrochemical, water utility, chemical, food and beverage and construction, the latest in vacuum technology will widen the capabilities for the removal and handling of hazardous and non-hazardous powders, sludges or solids. These two new specialist units are designed especially for suck and blow operations of wet or dry material, and will be used in operations such as filtration media removal, tank desludging, catalyst handling and other processes. Materials from these site operations are compliantly treated or disposed of using Veolia’s specialised facilities.
To help the effectiveness of site maintenance shutdown periods the new truck-mounted, high pressure, high flow water jetting unit is capable of creating pressures of up to 1,000 bar at 262 litres per minute using the 500 horsepower engine. This will advance the efficiency of site maintenance shutdown periods by delivering remote heat exchanger jetting, tank and column cleaning, and pipe and tube bundle cleaning, and manual blasting work within the petrochemical and chemical manufacturing sectors.
Supporting these are new ATEX-rated CCTV inspection and survey units equipped with the latest technology for inspecting drainage systems, chemical pipelines and the underground infrastructure of complex systems. This will deliver the detailed survey information required to plan maintenance works and ensure system safety and site production.
John Abraham, Chief Operating Officer – Veolia UK & Ireland – Industrial, Water & Energy, comments: “We know that our industrial customers rely on effective maintenance of their complex site processes to maintain output and commercial success. By using this latest technology our specialist Industrial Site Services team have extended their capabilities to help industrial sites limit down time and maintain their process lines. This will further help productivity and maintenance, and enhance safety for our customers sites.”
