Just because you’ve been ordered to “shelter-in-place” doesn’t mean that emergency spills stop. But, it does make your job harder.

Transformer & Firetruck-1

Transformers are still blowing up. Vehicles are still running over pad mounts. In wet spring weather dielectric fluids spread faster than a fart in a car and working from home compounds your response challenges.

Responding to Emergency Spills during COVID-19

In the past few weeks Environmental Coordinators in several electric utilities have called us basically saying, “It’s crazy. Seems like we’re responding to more spills than normal. And, we need help with spill control supply logistics. We basically need every EC to be a ‘rolling mini spill truck’.”

As you know, every second counts when it comes to responding to a spill and you can’t afford to be caught short-handed….especially in rainy weather. Many times ECs beat the spill contractor to the scene of the incident.

With space at a premium, our line of compact Spilltration oil and fuel control and cleanup products can help. Thanks to our “Smoosh Technology,” Spilltration products are engineered to take up 1/4th the space of old-fashioned white spill sheets and booms.

Our Top Requests from Environmental Coordinators

The top six top requests we’ve gotten from ECs in electric utilities are:

  1. SpillStorm Rolling Spill Boxes filled with Smooshed Spilltration products for beds of trucks
  2. SmooshKits with Husky Pads and Oil Shammy towels
  3. Spilltration® Emergency BuckKit with SpillBoas, Husky Pads & Rugs & Oil Shammy towels
  4. Environmental Coordinator (EC) Cubby Kit designed specifically for electric utility ECs
  5. SpillBoa® Rapid Response Booms that deploy 40x faster than traditional white booms
  6. Instant UnderFlow Dams to prevent oil spills from spreading in streams and ditches

Truck mows down transformer pole

With no clear end in site for getting “back to the service center” for work, you need to consider how to carry the most amount of spill control products in the least amount of space. We can help.

Rapid-Response Spilltration® Categories

The following information shows the top six compact, lightweight rapid-response Spilltration® categories that can help you:

  • Carry 400% more spill cleanup materials in your truck
  • Roll up to the incident quickly and confidently
  • Deploy Spilltration® products up to 40x faster than old-fashioned ones
  • Contain the spill in record time
  • Prevent the spill from spreading
  • Absorb oil & fuel while allowing clean rainwater to filter through. Nobody else can do this.
  • Have peace of mind, knowing you’re equipped to stop spills in their tracks.

No telling how long we’ll be required to work from home. In many ways, all electric utility ECs are at a crossroad. To the left is the established way of doing things. Lots of storage space at service centers to keep the old spill materials. Easy dispatch from your office. All the tools of your trade at your fingertips. But, that road is blocked for the foreseeable future.

To the right is the road less traveled. This road looks very different. Not necessarily harder, but certainly distinct. You have little choice. The old road is barricaded for now. To navigate the different road, you need a new mindset. New strategies and tactics. New tools.

New Tools and Strategies for Emergency Spill Response

We’ve been working on the very tools you need for the last five years. Did we see a pandemic coming? Did we think we’d all be working from home? No. But we did see a family of products that would help you control spills faster and better. We hope we can help you navigate through this incredible time. Please read on to learn more.

“We just realized we can get more than 200 gallons of transformer oil spill control power in a 23” x 37” x 46” space inside the bed of each EC’s truck. Plus, all the Spilltration products are neatly organized inside the SpillStorm boxes…..so we don’t have absorbents scattered all around.
