With urgent remedial works required to fix a leaking steam main at this hospital site, the client’s asbestos consultants appointed Decontaminate to assist. The steam main was located in a live service tunnel beneath the hospital grounds which was only accessible through a manhole in the roadway.
The steam main was isolated by the hospital’s engineers but other services in the tunnel had to remain live so extreme care was needed by the Decontaminate team while they removed the asbestos-contaminated pipe insulation and residue.
The works were completed over two days allowing the engineers to safely repair the leaking pipe.
