This job was completed in 2020 by the Rockaway National Crew on-site in Elrama, PA. Given the challenge of safely and effectively removing a transformer, we worked closely with ownership to get all paperwork and ensure that all oils were not only Non-PCB but also that they were properly disconnected from all power by OSHA and union certified electricians. Once these were disconnected the team was able to release the copper bus bar and work on the dismantling of the transformers.
After successfully opening them with fire watch at all times – the steel and copper were properly removed and recycled offsite into a domestic market. These units were completely cleaned and the areas were left as concrete pads and were properly handled from start to finish.
