Wreck removal mv SALOOS, Angola Salvage

Wreck removal mv SALOOS, Angola Roll-on-roll-off container vessel SALOOS capsized in May 2014 at Cabinda anchorage in Angola, carrying 155 containers and cargo. After the grounding of the vessel, an unknown amount of containers was scattered in an area of 60 km² with several containers stranded on the beach. KOOLE was contracted in 2015 to remove the complete vessel, survey the area of 60 km² and remove all detected containers and debris. Two tugboats and four barges were mobilized, equipped with 24 chainpullers, several cranes (500ton – 200 ton), salvage and survey-equipment to Angola to execute the wreck- and cargo-removal. While the area was being surveyed and containers were removed from the seabed and the beach, the wreck was prepared for lifting and removal. By utilizing directional drilling, a total of twelve chains were positioned underneath the wreck and the hydraulic chainpullers pulled the wreck from the mud. After releasing the wreck from the seabed, the vessel was removed in situ with chisel and torch cutting and all containers and debris originated from M.V. SALOOS were identified and removed.

Demolition of a chemical plant Industrial

Demolition of a chemical plant KOOLE has started the asbestos removal and demolition of the FCP-A unit at Evonik Antwerp. The 36 meter high FCP-A unit includes office buildings, semi-open and closed production units, storage tanks, loading berth and a storage shed. The surrounding pipe bridges and businesses remain operational during the demolition.

VGM Book Contractors

VGM Book As one of few Demolition contractors in The Netherlands, KOOLE BV is certified for SSC Petrochemical. For KOOLE NV in Belgium this is identical. This is not particularly because of the demands of our customers, but because the board of KOOLE wants to show clearly that health, safety and environment at work is considered as the utmost importance. One of the major differences compared to SCC** is that in case of SCC-P, special attention to SHE awareness and SHE behavior in the workplace is required. The underlying thought is that over 80% of the accidents is caused by human action. By taking measures right here, this rate can be lowered. After introducing an internal LMRA card by KOOLE, a few years ago and presented to all employees, the SHE handbook was published in paperback format under the Dutch title ‘VGM handboek’. All employees are invited to carry the SHE handbook at all times at work, just like their safety passport. This handbook is not only intended as a reference, but mostly in contributing to improve the SHE awareness and the associated SHE behavior in the workplace.

Energy plant Rotterdam Industrial

Energy plant Rotterdam With the environmental rules and regulations getting more strict worldwide, gas fired energy plants are modernizing all the time. Prolongation of the current installation was not cost-effective anymore and therefore dismantling was necessary. KOOLE has removed the following elements: • Transformator • Gas turbin • Three gas turbine buildings • Steam turbine building • Three boiler rooms • Two pumping facilities The dismantling has taken place down to 5.5 meters below ground level. The operation has taken ten months and is currently taking place in the final stage.

Asbestos Remediation mv Otapan

Asbestos Remediation mv Otapan >>

Tanker Otapan was tied up in Amsterdam from 1999 to 2006. In autumn 2006 Otapan even achieved international fame when it sailed to Turkey in order to be demolished. The Turkish authorities refused to admit the ship, when it turned out that the quantity of asbestos was much more than the stated 1000 kilos. KOOLE was given the assignment to remove 77,000 kilos of asbestos, after which the ship could be released.
