In 2018, Augean North Sea Services (ANSS) provided industrial
cleaning services to Barrow’s South Morecambe Terminal during
Spirit Energy’s largest onshore decommissioning project to date.
ANSS, who hold the industrial services cleaning contract at
Barrow, were tasked with safely removing any residual sludges
and cleaning 3 condensate tanks so that they would be ready for
disconnection and subsequent demolition.
One of the tanks in particular, T-1602, presented a challenge to
the crew due to over 350m3 of thick, contaminated fluids and
sludge that coated the walls and floor. This sludge contained
hydrocarbons and malodorous heavy iron sulphides, the
removal and disposal of which required a safe and cost-effective
solution to be provided by ANSS.
