OIL CONTAINMENT SYSTEM

Shield was contacted to design and construct an oil containment system surrounding five transformer pads on the downstream side of a hydroelectric dam. This system would collect and transport oil to an oil-water separator in the event of a spill.

Our team performed quality assurance inspections during the construction and, due to difficulty accessing the downstream side of the project, Shield had to be diligent that the intended service life was met. Shield’s role also included inspections of reinforced concrete, structural steel, piping, and foundation inspections and field testing of lightweight concrete.

THE SHIELD EFFECT

Shield’s multidisciplined experience in geotechnical engineering provided our client with a variety of construction quality assurance inspection and testing services. With these skills, we were able to spare the client the burden of hiring multiple consultants, providing a simplified route to accessing comprehensive services for their projects.
