RECONDITIONING NEEDS ASSESSMENT - MANY REASONS TO FIND OUT THE CONDITION OF THE SOIL

PROPERTY TRANSACTIONS AND ACQUISITIONS

The owner of the property is always primarily responsible for contamination of the soil and its reconditioning. It is always good to secure at the time of purchase that there is no need for reconditioning of the soil.

OBSERVATIONS OF CONTAMINATION

The observations that are made at excavations, for example, from oil, fuels, solvents or waste fractions launch a need for a clarification of the contamination and reconditioning of the soil.

REMOVAL OF OIL TANK

Old oil tanks are particularly high-risk objects. When removing an underground oil tank, it is advisable to check that the soil is not contaminated as a result of overfillings or leakages.

DAMAGES AND ACCIDENTS

In traffic accidents, for example, the breaking of fuel tanks is possible. It is possible to minimize the damages from the breaking of a tank with fast restoration actions and correct solutions for action.

CONTAMINATION GENERATED BY ACTIVITY

Industrial activity, workshops, service stations or contamination that is generated by activity in the property further back in history.

GROUNDWATER RESTORATION

Monitoring of groundwaters in the groundwater areas required by an authority or when the monitoring of the restoration takes place. We install groundwater pipes for groundwater level monitoring and sampling. The water and water system sampling is performed by a certified sampler or by their management.

IN FINLAND, THE TERM PIMA (PILAANTUNEET MAA-AINEKSET) IS A GENERALIZED TERM, WHEN REFERRING TO CONTAMINATED SOIL. PIMA IS, PRINCIPALLY, CONTAMINATED SOIL AS A RESULT OF HUMAN ACTIVITY, WHERE CONTAMINANTS HAVE BEEN DETECTED TO SUCH AN EXTENT THAT THEY ARE CAUSING DAMAGE TO HEALTH, THE ENVIRONMENT OR THEY HAVE AN IMPACT ON THE AREA’S WELL-BEING.

We use multi-function drills for environmental technical investigations and our company has prepared cooperation agreements for trial pit investigations across PBM’s operation area. We use field meters widely as a support for the laboratory results, both in investigation and reconditioning.

We have PetroFlag field tests for the measurement of the total petroleum hydrocarbon content, PID analyzers for the measurement of volatile VOC compounds and a handheld XRF analyzer for the definition of heavy metals from the soil.

We implement tens of investigations of contaminated soil per year and we work as a requested supervisor for authorities in different subjects. Our certified samplers are at your service in the field works. Investigations and reporting are made according to the available instructions and recommendations, among others, in accordance with the Government Decree 214/2007.

In addition, we utilize our own laboratory and certified environmental laboratories for investigation of samples with other specialty experts (among others, asbestos and contaminant experts).

WE IMPLEMENT THE WHOLE PIMA CHAIN REQUIRED BY AN AUTHORITY FROM START TO FINISH

  1. Contamination investigation
  2. Reconditioning needs assessment
  3. Cooperation between authorities
  4. Supervision of reconditioning
  5. Sampling and monitoring
  6. Precision measurement of excavation sites
  7. Final reporting
