Tanker Explosion

Client: Lykins Energy Solutions
Location: Dublin, OH

ERC responded to an 8,000-gallon fuel tanker explosion, which resulted in a fatality. Additionally, the explosion closed down access to the ramp for more than a week.

The newly constructed flyover ramp connecting Route 33 to eastbound interstate I-270 burned at extreme temperatures as parts of the ramp’s concrete deck melted.

ERC swept the road and provided a vacuum truck to control runoff. The Environmental Services group then excavated, loaded, transported, and disposed of 355 tons of petroleum-impacted soil for the event. Next, our team imported clean soil for backfill and compaction. Lastly, ERC installed a new concrete mat for the runoff on the hillside of the ramp.

Environmental Remediation Contractor’s Environmental Services group routinely does homeless camp cleanups for the City of Columbus. On this particular site, ERC provided thorough site decontamination. Additionally, our team containerized numerous varieties of trash and debris.

Ultimately, there were 38 roll-off boxes that we moved off-site for disposal. This included shopping carts, propane cylinders, and household hazardous waste removal & disposal. Moreover, ERC provided cleanup and disposal services from illegal dumping.

Finally, ERC provided clearing and grubbing on-site for visibility and preventative maintenance through mass removal.
