KOOLE at the “Naardervaart” Environmental

KOOLE at the “Naardervaart” By utilizing two vacuumtrucks KOOLE has participated in the cleaning of the top deck of the railbridge (KW050) at the “Naardervaart” (the Netherlands).

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.

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.

Vacupress maintenance at air terminal Environmental

Vacupress maintenance at air terminal KOOLE has been deployed during maintenance work at the air terminal of Schiphol. One of the vacuum trucks has been utilized to remove concrete pellets, during a high pressure demolition procedure.

Removal of two LNG tanks (diameter of approx. 50m) with all accompanying installations. Also extensive soil work performed.

BASF

BASF >>

Due to evolving technologies and insights, the plants of chemical company BASF are subject to continuous change. On the Feluy site in Belgium, for instance, a 10 hectare area with various installations became redundant. The two most striking objects were chimneys of respectively 110 and 65 metres high. In addition to the two chimneys, KOOLE delivered the area in 6 months, fully ready for construction. The demolition included a range of objects such as gas spheres, reactors and pipeline routes and eventually the separated disposal of the waste. On a few nearby sites, large storage tanks (with a 30 metre diameter) were also removed.

DSM Agro, IJmuiden

DSM Agro, IJmuiden >>

Due to the prohibition to transport ammonia by rail, the DSM Agro site in IJmuiden became obsolete. Since 1929, DSM had been producing chemical fertilizers on the Tata Steel site (formerly Corus). KOOLE has been contracted by Tara Steel to demolish all buildings and to deliver the site ready for construction. The site covers an area of approx. 130,000 m². The site contains 40 objects to be demolished. These objects vary from office buildings to cooling towers and from factory halls to a 120 metre high chimney.
