We were recently called to an emergency oil spill incident on a film location site in Co. Wicklow.
Over 280l of diesel fuel had leaked from a faulty pipe on a generator truck.
We advised on best practice in terms of cleaning it up, such as what oil spill products to use and how to correctly dispose of the resultant waste.
Using our oil spill clean up products, the site was remediated before any environmental damage was caused.
The location manager was very relieved and impressed. He asked to provide a demonstration to other film location managers on how to treat an oil spill on location.
Today a number of film location managers came to our Head Office in Kilcoole, Co. Wicklow. Our Remediation Field Manager, Neil Robertson, demonstrated the items in a spill response kit that all location managers should have i.e. absorbent oil booms, absorbent oil pads, oil binders, and rapid response oil containment units.
