Andrews Ventilation Hire provide metal recycling company with bespoke extraction solution

When one of Britain’s leading metal recycling companies experienced a fire on a ship they were working on, an immediate ventilation solution was required to assist with the removal of lingering fumes. Our client was tasked with removing scrap metal from the ship’s interior but could not proceed until the contaminated air had been extracted.

Andrews Ventilation was subsequently contacted and made aware of the financial repercussions of our customer being held up – approximately £30,000 per day! An immediate response was therefore required, prompting our trained local specialists to visit the site later that day and propose an appropriate ventilation hire arrangement.

As part of this process, the customer was required to recoat the flumes with a special resin.

Ventilation hire provides bespoke extraction solution for major construction company

A well-known construction company contacted Andrews Ventilation Hire to prevent hazardous fumes from marring the development of a new retail outlet. Before the facility could open to the public, though, a floor covering 30,000 square metres would have to be laid.

Our specialists were tasked with providing a temporary ventilation solution for the affected area – removing air that had been contaminated by the dangerous chemicals used to create the resin flooring.
