Sonic subsidiary completes PCB removal, destruction from Canadian navy ship
VANCOUVER, BC-Sonic Environmental Solutions has completed the removal and destruction of more than 30,000 kilograms of electrical components containing polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB) from the HMCS Annapolis. The work was carried out by Sonic's hazardous waste subsidiary, Contech PCB Containment Technology, in partnership with the Nanaimo Shipyard Group. The latter was contracted by the Department of National Defence (DND) to decommission the Canadian naval vessel. Sonic reports that the project proceeded as planned and was successfully completed well within the required schedule. Contech specializes in decommissioning PCB-contaminated equipment, such as electrical transformers, on-site and has been serving companies in western Canada for over 12 years. The company collects PCB waste throughout British Columbia, contains it and consolidates it for destruction. More information is available on-line at www.sonicenvironmental.com/contech.html.
