Substation Decommissioning & Site Remediation – Utility

Green-Port was retained to manage a turnkey project at the request of its client to decommission scrap non-PCB oil-filled transformers and switchgear at a former substation property in Ontario, and turn it into industrial land suitable for future development.

  • The <50 ppm scrap network transformer was drained on site and the scrap transformer oil was fully recycled
  • The obsolete transformer, switchgear and tower were removed for recycling at Green-Port’s approved facility in Georgetown, Ontario
  • The building was demolished and the surface soil was tested to depth for contaminants, including PCBs
  • The contaminated soil was excavated and disposed of, and the excavated area backfilled with compacted clean fill
