Basetec Services were engaged by Penrice Soda to reinstate a concrete acid containment pit. The existing pit was completely corroded from the fluid media and had eaten through the concrete pit through to the ground surface.

Basetec were called in to design and fabricate a drop in sump lining that could handle the fluid conditions. The project was successfully implemented in a 5-day shutdown window with the crew working around the clock to meet the project deadlines.

Basetec had to dewater the sump continually as underground water posed a continual problem. Once the sump liner was put in place it was then precision grouted in situ using high flow grout pumps.
