American Coating Technologies LLC received a call from the Buckeye terminal saying they have a secondary containment at the terminal that was inspected by Department of Environmental Conservation, and they indicated that it did not meet the current standard.
International Petroleum Traders came to us in need of repair to their secondary containment at their terminal in Rensselaer, New York. Their entire containment was comprised of blacktop, which was severely cracked and damaged in numerous areas.
Under direction of the Department of Environmental Conservation, Superior Energy was required to submit a complete engineering plan to put the terminal back in service. American Coating Technologies was contacted to devise a plan which included a complete secondary containment liner, a primary containment liner, and the recoating of tanks and piping.
Kinder Morgan's Staten Island Terminal has secondary containments for all the terminal tanks, but the pipes were outside of the berms. If there would have been a leak or spill within this area there would have been no way of containing the fuel.
American Coating Technologies was contacted to provide secondary containment to a terminal that had to meet the requirement of the Department of Environmental Conservation. The horizontal tanks had containment but all the piping around the tanks and the lines leading to the truck loading did not have secondary containment.
Bottini Fuels in Port Jarvis, New York purchased the depicted terminal, after in an inspection, the terminal was found not to have enough capacity to contain a major spill requirement. The containment area needed to be enlarged to meet capacity requirements, additionally the unloading area needed to be changed so it would drain into the containment area.
Buckeye Terminals in Albany, New York had installed many new systems to the terminal at this location to meet their growing need to hold and transfer enormous amounts of ethanol and Canadian crude oil. This project required the installation of many new systems with over 150 new penetrations to their existing secondary containment.
American Coating Technologies was contacted to solve insulation problems with the Campbell's Soup hot water delivery system. They had installed a new system with inlet and delivery pipes to their manufacturing process. American Coating Technologies determined that spray insulation coatings would solve their concerns and requirements.
Kinder Morgan’s petroleum storage area required secondary containment and high-density polyethylene was selected. The problem was that these areas use many types of heavy equipment, which can easily destroy high-density polyethylene. American Coating Technologies recommended a polyurea liner that would protect the area from damage.
American Coating Technologies was contacted to install secondary containment to Kinder Morgan’s train track and rail delivery area in Carteret, NJ. The project had to be done in January during one of the coldest winters on record, with temperatures falling to below 0° on many days.
Noco Corporation, after acquiring Thrify Oil, inspected one of their terminals with the Department of Environmental Conservation and determined that it did not meet the requirements for secondary containment. After inspection of the area, American Coating Technologies determined that not only was the containment damaged but so were the walls and concrete supports.
