Description of the job

  • Removal of asbestos-containing materials and dust and other contaminants from decommissioned steelworks.
  • Removal of dangerous and friable materials and steelworks dust, mainly amosite mounds on the ground due to past collapses.

Critical points

  • The size of the area and the state of degradation of buildings made it impossible to set up confinements to use traditional remediation techniques.

Innovative solutions introduced

  • In cooperation with Unieco, a SAFE-CAR suction sweeper was developed and patented, it is fitted with localised confinement absolute filters. Thanks to its accessories (extensible pipes), this machine can vacuum-clean both flat surfaces and non-accessible areas, such as holes and overhead surfaces.
  • The safe and high-level performances of this machine made it possible to carry out this remediation in a short time and at a reasonable cost.
  • The economic success of this technical solution made it possible to use Safe-car in other remediation jobs, which would have been impossible or would have led to much higher costs.
  • Amount of the contract: € 3,594,540
