As a leader in environmental services consulting, McHale Environmental provides sampling and testing on an international scale. Summaries of selected international projects are given below.
We worked with the Saudi Arabia Basic Industries Corporation (SABIC) Training Center, Air-Tech conducted an intensive training course on the measurement of fugitive emissions following the protocol of EPA Method 21. This work was a precursor to additional training in the use of bar code readers and inventory software for a newly implemented leak detection and repair (LDAR) program covering several industries.
Through a subcontract to the U.S. EPA and the U.S. AID, McHale personnel traveled to Volgograd to provide hands-on training to Russian scientists in the application of EPA sampling and analysis methods for measuring pollutants in source and ambient air. Training was conducted at one of the city's most significant sources using the most current U.S. equipment and instrumentation.
Under contract to General Electric Corporation™, McHale performed sampling and analysis in support of the installation of a series of new natural gas fired turbines used for the generation of electrical power. Real-time data for NOx, O2 and CO emissions were provided to GE personnel to assist in the "tuning" of the turbines to meet delivery guarantees. Air-Tech provided training in the use of the sampling equipment to the Korean operators.
Under contract to Alcoa™, McHale provided sampling support at a major primary aluminum bauxite refining plant. Testing was performed to assess particulate emissions from several process emission points.
Additional international settings where McHale personnel have provided expertise include:
• The U.K.
|• The Netherlands
• The North Sea
• Puerto Rico
• Trinidad & Tobago
