Excavation works executed

11 December 2012

From 07/12/2012 to 11/12/2012, the soil excavation in the highly polluted source area outside the tank farm took place. To enable an excavation until 2 m-bgl, the groundwater table was lowered by means of temporary vertical wells. About 600 tons of contaminated soil was transported to an off-site treatment center. During the excavation works, extensive safety measures were taken to avoid direct contact with the contaminated soil, inhalation of vapors and damage of underground utilities.
