We are able to undertake large scale soil washing processes using bespoke plant, developed and built in-house, as well as small site trials using plant that is entirely self-contained and transportable to site in a single delivery.
VHE’s experience includes major washing processes at Basford Gasworks (the first large scale trial of this technology in the UK), Woolwich Arsenal and the former diesel depot at Temple Meads in Bristol. We recently carried out remediation work on the site of the new athletes’ village for the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, which involved washing in excess of 100,000m³ of historically contaminated made ground.
Our involvement in soil washing trials at the site investigation stage provides clear information as to the sustainability of the soil washing process as a remediation option. With the implementation of the EU Landfill Directive, it is increasingly viable to wash smaller amounts of material, either as part of a combination of remediation techniques or as the sole remediation solution.
