Massachusetts

Services: Facility Services
Client Served: Utility


The Facility Services division of Loureiro was contracted by a regional utility company to decontaminate the exterior surfaces of a large transformer at their power generating facility during a maintenance period. The exterior surfaces of the transformer and the interior of a containment system were contaminated by leaking flange gaskets. IS technicians performed oil decontamination of the transformer using personnel aerial lifts, decon brushes and a pressure washer. Waste waters were collected in the containment. The containment was decontaminated and waste waters pumped to drums for disposal.
