Snyder’s top-notch and discreet remediation services kept their offshore activities productive during remediation.
Snyder Environmental performed partial asbestos abatement of the Armada Perkasa, a 693 ft FSBO vessel in Nigeria, Africa. Built in 1975, the ship contained various asbestos-containing materials that was properly removed, encapsulated, and cataloged for its location. Snyder’s abatement methods allowed the FSBO to remain in production during the abatement process. In addition to abatement services, Snyder provided an asbestos survey and an updated inventory of hazardous materials. The crew was trained on proper handling methods to manage most of the issues when maintenance needs arose. Snyder performed this work with short mobilization notice and did so for 30% of the price of the next lowest bid.
Asbestos is commonly found in fire-proofing applications, acoustical spray on ceilings, pipe insulation, resilient floor coverings, exterior sidings, caulking, and roofing materials. Asbestos is known for its thermal properties, durability and was very commonly used up until the mid-1970s. An estimated 3,000 products have been manufactured that contain asbestos, and there is still no prohibition on the manufacturing or installation of these materials.
