Steam Injection Remediation

Steam Injection Remediation by Cornelsen

With UK project experience delivering both in-situ thermal desorption (ISTD) and steam injection remediation systems, developed over the course of the last 7 years, Cornelsen undertook its second major steam injection project in the UK in 2014.

Compressed Air and Steam

Unlike conventional steam injection, Cornelsen, together with our partner Reconsite GmbH delivers a steam/compressed air mix.

Advantages of this process include:

  • Increasing the efficiency of heat propagation through the formation by convection;
  • More efficient mass removal;
  • Reducing the risk of dispersing the contaminant plume by a condensing steam front as the water/contaminant mix evaporates quickly into injected air at temperatures well below 100 oC (the point of steam distillation).

Cornelsen personnel operated and optimise the remediation system continuously throughout the project and successfully met the performance parameters of our client and the operational up time requirements of 95%.  Another steam injection project is currently underway in Berlin, Germany.

All steam injection systems and process plant is available ex stock for rapid mobilisation.  This includes all the necessary cooling and heat exchange plant as well as critical safety equipment.  No system installation will be completed without a detailed Hazard and Operability study (HAZOP) which we would expect to undertake together with our client.  Thereafter, all system infrastructure including pipework, electrical supply, control systems and safety systems are undertaken in house by Cornelsen engineers.

Cornelsen Expansion

Company News 2015 Cornelsen Expansion

2014 was Cornelsen’s busiest year.  This included the recruitment of two new engineers and our second apprentice engineer; our previous apprentice Ben now being a fully qualified Service Engineer and PLC programmer.

September 2014 also saw us break ground on a new office and workshop facility near Bristol.   This new development allows us to centralize all our UK process plant at a secure yard contained within our own new premises and provides excellent new workshop facilities for our mechanical and electrical engineers.  Together with our new office space, these new facilities will enable us to provide a higher level of service to our clients through greater efficiency in storage, maintenance and construction, whilst simultaneously providing us with a firm footing and the space for continued growth.

Purpose-built facility designed with a clear identity
