The Power Plant’s Start-Up Challenge: A waste-to-energy plant required a thorough cleaning of its new steam line using demineralised water prior to its initial start-up. While the on-site storage capacity for demineralised water was 150 m³, the amount needed for cleaning was 250 m3. The plant was also under a very tight deadline for completing the commissioning.
The United Rentals Solution: The plant called United Rentals in the early evening and requested four Baker tanks and hoses delivered as soon as possible. We delivered all of the required equipment within hours of the call.
The United Rentals rapid response team enabled the plant to keep to its start-up schedule whilst eliminating the prospect of running dry during the critical cleaning process.
Tank Lined - 70 m³
A regular turnaround at a chemical plant’s tank farm turned into an emergency when one of the sites permanent tanks caught fire. There was an urgent need to contain vast amounts of polluted firefighting wastewater.
