… to protect the environment at Collins Aérospace
As part of its efforts to develop the industrial market, the Paris Regional Division won a contract with Collins Aérospace in Antony (in the Hauts-de-Seine department)
The site specialises in the maintenance and manufacture of fire-protection systems for helicopters, tanks and aeroplanes. An inspection by the Regional and Interdepartmental Office of the Environment and the Energy of Ile-de-France (DRIEE) revealed non-conformities with regard to classified industrial facilities for environmental protection. This prompted the Franco-American firm to call on SADE, which it identified thanks to its brand-new website!
The survey submitted by the Paris Regional Division, together with SADE Engineering, proposed three costed solutions to resolve these non-conformities (particularly in relation to the storage of 350m³ of water):
- installation of a concrete-encased retention pond,
- installation of a pipe culvert,
- creation of surface storage around the site.
Following 3D modelling of the site’s terrain, the third solution was ultimately selected. Teams from the Ivry Agency then got involved to install a 30cm-high, 40m-long pond at the back of the site, which provides a maximum flooding depth of 20cm for the site and completely safe access for emergency teams.
The work, which included the installation of shutters in the existing site network, was completed in 10 days in a complex environment (presence of storage containers full of chemical products close by).
Another satisfied – and now compliant – customer!
