Biogas production tanks (e.g. digestion) may require regular or extraordinary cleaning of their interior, in order to restore optimal biogas production, to check for damage, corrosion, leakage or perform maintenance works and repair. In this frame, our company can undertake and carry out all the necessary tasks, from the initial stage of the internal cleaning until the collection and final disposal of the collected materials/waste, without the interference and involvement of other companies.
These operations are considered to be very specialized and dangerous, and for this reason our company occupies only experienced and well-trained personnel in entry, washing, pumping, ventilation and cleaning processes as well as waste management.
The works are carried out in accordance with the strictest legislative and regulatory framework, based on specific Safe Work Method Statements, as well as the ATEX Directives, always under the supervision of a coordinator / security officer of our company.
