From air pollution control to track construction
The first project involved a new petrol vapour recovery system as well as a new fuel depot control and visualisation. Up to 100,000 litres of petrol have been recovered each year since commissioning, with pollution levels well below the threshold values of the Ordinance on Air Pollution Control (OAPC). Further projects followed – the stationary fire protection installations had to be refitted to comply with the current Carbura guidelines, and finally, the feeder tracks to the fuel depot needed to be renewed. Environmental construction support was also a major issue throughout all project phases.
