FORT MYERS, FLORIDA (November 26, 2012) Structural Injection Systems announces it has been commissioned by Florida Power & Light (FPL) to oversee and implement the FPL Diesel Containment Tank Remediation project. This is a project that is needed throughout the state of Florida at various water, chemical, and power treatment plants. Structural Injection Systems’ most recent project was at the Manatee FPL Plant, located at 19050 State Rd 62 in Parrish, FL.
“This is a very important project for the state of Florida,” said Scott Otey, Structural Injection Systems. “We have prepared our team for the implementation of the work and are excited about getting it underway. We also look forward to the opportunity to perform this much needed work for other FPL plants across the state.”
The scope of work for the FPL Diesel Containment Tank Remediation project consists of the following elements:
Soil stabilization – Pump Epoxy into (30) port locations and raise slab to make level
Slab stabilization – Pump Dneef Hydro Active Flex every 24" around slab-to-floor base
Seal all floor cracks – Pump Deneef Flex LV at 45 degree angles along all cracks
Properly seal cracks with GC-2 Polysulfide
Final Coating – Coat all concrete surfaces using BASF Thorocoat
“The problem being rectified is almost epidemic across Florida, in that many containment pits have experienced structural cracks that have been ignored,” says Otey. “These open cracks take on water and before you know it the ground below becomes unstable. Proper maintenance to a containment pit would prevent such a problem, but all too often maintenance is not budgeted. This method of repair is something not too many contractors can pull off. We are proud to be one of the few in Florida with the technology, equipment and know-how to accomplish such an important scope of work”.
