Leading on from the Drogheda job, Translink (an existing customer) had heard excellent reports from the ADP (Auto Drain Plug) systems that were recently installed in nearby Drogheda, and after a consultation with one of our sales team and meetings with Drogheda's main foreman, it was decided to implement a full trial at Translink in order to test the plugs and their functionality for ease of use for engineers.
Snagging issues did arise, mainly that due to being a trial the budget for the test was quite restrictive, so we instead decided to use a mobile waste recovery module as opposed to hard-plumbing long runs of costly pipework for oil evacuation. The mobile unit consists of a bunded and covered tank, complete with dual pumps for sump suction and waste delivery to a storage vessel.
Currently this system is reaching the end of a 3 month trial on 4 trains running the ADP system. More news to follow!
