Project Overview

Highlights:​

  • Removal of 10,000m2of nickel contaminated SMF was followed by remediation of 5400m2 of concrete floor using a specialised non-grinding, dustless removal unit.​ 
  • Delta’s Safety First methodology ensured safe removal and decontamination of nickel from the structure.  This included using the shed’s exhaust system to control air pressure inside the structure which in turn reduced the risk on external contamination and resulted in minimal disruption to port operations.

Scope Of Work:

​Delta Group was engaged by Esperance Ports Sea & Land for the decontamination, demolition and remediation of the 5,400m2 Black Swan Nickel Shed.

Delta Group used its experienced friable asbestos removal team to safely remove nickel contaminants from the sheds roof, walls, floor, conveyor system and internal plant. 

Delta’s Safety First methodology ensured  the use of the sheds existing exhaust system which helped the entire shed in being held under negative air pressure allowing for a safe and cost effective removal solution which did not affect the Ports day to day activities.

​Over 10,000m2 of nickel contaminated SMF was removed from the structure.  This was followed by remediation of the 5,400m2 concrete floor by removing the top layer of nickel impregnated concrete using a specialised non-grinding, dustless removal unit. 

After successful completion and clearance by third party hygienists of the decontamination and remediation stages, Delta demolished the shed and its infrastructure, with zero impact on port operations. 

With the shed removed, Delta completed the final clean up and sealed the remaining concrete slab allowing it to be utilised as one of the Port's main lay down areas.
