Complex Industrial Sites

Complex defense, petro-chemical, transportation and industrial sites present special challenges for site assessment and restoration teams. A key to achieving a successful and sustainable remediation outcome, and improving the return on the property, is through experienced application of science and technology, data best practices, engineering expertise and collaborative teamwork.

At COLUMBIA Technologies, our solutions are tailor-made for helping oil companies, manufacturers, transportation systems and other major enterprises reduce the risk, uncertainty and costs of cleaning up and remediating complex industrial sites.

Additionally, complex sites require the highest standards of safety and security, strong coordination with operating facility staff, and the deepest understanding of the interplay between different operations, construction and chemicals of concern. COLUMBIA Technologies’ experienced scientists and engineers have logged tens of thousands of hours of safe operation in partnership with the global community’s top-tiered engineering consulting firms on complex facilities world-wide.

As it is for all of our customers, health and safety is a top priority at COLUMBIA. We have complied a record of ZERO lost workdays throughout our 16-year history. Each operator is trained and adheres to COLUMBIA’s approved Standard Operating Procedure for direct sensing and all field personnel have completed a strong set of safety and security training including:

  • OSHA 40-hour Hazard Waste Site Worker Training
  • OSHA 8-hour Supervisory Training
  • Loss Prevention System (LPS) training
  • E-RAILSAFE Certification
  • Transportation Worker Identification Credentials (TWIC) Certification
  • Drug-Free Workplace

Complex sites require the integration of multiple lines of evidence, both historical and current. Our award-winning, patented cloud-based SmartData Solutions® process, combines the continuous information flow from any of our direct sensing technologies with other lines of evidence enabling the best integrated decision making information display. Accessing the real-time GIS-based data in a web browser enables you to ask the critical questions while performing your own investigation and analysis, and thereby reducing the time for technical decision making and overall project costs. Use the resulting reports and documentation to better understand your options as a property owner or purchaser, improve your position as a litigant, or negotiate the most workable solution with regulators.

Example Industry Experience on Complex Sites Includes:

  • Petroleum refineries
  • Oil & gas pipelines and compressor stations
  • Oil & gas storage facilities
  • Chemical manufacturing plants
  • Transportation facilities including airports, railways, and shipping ports
  • Complex manufacturing facilities
