Sludge Extraction & Treatment
We can clean all types of pits, interceptor bays and lagoons, even while they are still in use, so there is no need to take the pit or lagoon out of service. We remotely extract and remove the sludge from the base of the pit or lagoon using specific equipment such as pumps, underwater robots (Hydrodredger), floating barges or excavators.
The extracted sludge is processed through screening equipment and centrifuges or filter press equipment to separate and maximise oil recovery and minimise the amount of sludge taken for disposal. We then handle the transportation and disposal of the minimised sludge.
