Jude Beyerle, group leader for substation engineering for the Louisville operations of E.On U.S, said that in 2005, the utility installed the (Barrier Boom) filters in about 200 power distribution substations as a means of meeting EPA regulations requiring substations to have a secondary oil-containment source.
Beyerle declined to say how much E.On invested in the filters, but he estimated that they provide a 50 percent to 75 percent cost savings over equivalent solid concrete containment.
Beyerle said oil leaks in substations are rare, but because transformers and circuit breakers contain as much as 6,000 gallons of oil, a plan must be in place to keep spills contained. Since installing the filter, E.On has not had any oil leaks at any of the substations, Beyerle said.
"We were impressed with the product because it is a relatively low-cost alternative to other products," Beyerle said. "We have been very pleased with the product and with the supplier."
Thank you for introducing me to C.I.Agent. In my thirty years in professional safety I have never come across a product to remove oils and fuel from the water like C.I.Agent.
At Stanford the cost of laying a concrete floor to help contain the pollutants was to cost about £30,000 whereas the membrane costs about £5,000 – from a financial perspective alone it is a real winner.
