C.I.Agent Solutions® is a multi-national company based in Louisville, KY. We specialize in pioneering innovative, environmentally-friendly hydrocarbon management solutions to help electrical utilities around the world meet environmental regulations by providing Secondary Containment solutions. Since 2002, more than 10,000 substations have installed PE-approved C.I.Agent Solutions’ Secondary Containment Systems. What exactly does that mean?
All electrical utilities have energized power distribution equipment that utilize oil to cool and insulate the electrical conductors. Because transformer oil leaks are common, it is vital to employ Secondary Containment methods to serve as the second layer of discharge defense if the primary defense were to fail. This guarantees the prevention of oily discharge into navigable water or adjoining shorelines, per the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasure 40 CFR 112.7. If there is ever a catastrophic leak, the SPCC wants to ensure a secondary spill containment solution is in place.
It isn’t always easy to identify the ideal secondary containment solution for your specific situation. There are a number of variables to consider, such as type of soil, weather patterns, proximity to navigable water, space constraints and more, and there is no “one size fits all” solution. This is why we offer a number of customized Secondary Containment Solutions and Diversion Products that are adaptable to both new applications or for retro-fitting existing containment. To help navigate the multiple options, we developed an interactive, easy-to-use Secondary Containment Solutions Tool that guides users in identifying all applicable oil containment possibilities.
As a global leader in innovative secondary containment technologies, we are fully committed to tackling any hydrocarbon management challenge. In fact, we believe deeply enough in the effectiveness of our containment solutions to provide a Pollution and Product Liability Environmental Insurance Policy of up to $7 million.
