Eliminate Hydrogen Sulfide from Barges Prior to Cleaning
A Gulf-based Industrial Cleaner was tasked with the cleaning of several 30,000 barrel three compartment barges previously containing a hydrocarbon product. Customer needs GEM to bring down the hydrogen sulfide levels below 10 ppm before cleaning event can commence. Once the H2S levels have been reduced, the barge is safe for cleaning.
GEM utilized a Mobile GEMScrub Scrubber for vapor treatment. With trained personnel running the project, GEM mobilized to the marine location and immediately set up. Using a portable blower, GEM pulled the hazardous vapors from the barge and into the scrubber trailer for treatment. With GEM’s Lead Technician taking vapor readings and monitoring the H2S along the way, the barge vapor levels were reduced and H2S confirmed below 10 ppm. Confirmation of vapor monitoring readings was provided to the customer upon project completion.
Dangerous hydrogen sulfide was removed from the barges enabling the cleaning contractor to perform their services in a safe manner.
