Case Study

Evidence based assessment & spill mapping of your pollution risk will save you time and money.

by | Jan 5, 2018 | Case Study, Cost Saving |

A large manufacturing company in the West Midlands supplying Jaguar Land Rover found a pollution issue into a local water course. The local EA officer advised that the sites surface water runoff should pass through an oil separator.

Sandfield Penstock solutions were asked to look at the design for the separators as the site was initially quoted a project cost in excess of £300K. As the site had very little hydrocarbon risk, we decided to look at completing a full site spill and fire water runoff risk assessment. On completion of a site risk assessment, our engineers discovered a non operational pump chamber. The chamber had not been maintained for many years and soluble oil was escaping via the overflow into the surface water system. From the initial survey, we were able to dismiss the need for oil separators and evidence the sites initial pollution came from lack of awareness of the sites drainage system. The work saved the site a £300K project that would have been incapable of preventing a pollution incident.

If spill containment and CIRIA736 compliance is currently a consideration for you please do not hesitate to call 01299 823158 or email us, we will be very happy to discuss our solutions with you.

Testimonials

"I was introduced to Sandfield about six years ago when the company I worked for asked me to look at the installation of some new penstock valves and servicing of our pollution control valves across the group sites. After talking to Sandfield and meeting their engineers we gave Sandfield our UK service contract.

We then went on to install Toggleblok valves as we were impressed by how it all worked with a minimum amount of civil work required in most instances.

I have recommended Sandfield Penstock Solutions' Toggleblok to many companies over the last few years. They have a very professional and effective approach to water and waste control systems."

"Working with Sandfield allowed us to use existing site topography and drainage systems to maximise emergency containment  on site, creating meaningful quick response scenario’s which are easily communicated to, and understood by regulatory bodies, emergency services and on site staff. We now satisfy our legal duties set out in our operational permit and under COMAH regulations.

During site operation we have confidence that we are able to cope with emergency situations around the clock. Sandfield Penstock Solutions have installed systems, which are not overly complicated and allow for rapid troubleshooting when faults are found during routine testing and planning for alternative arrangements when issues occur."
