2016 Chief Executive Officer’s year in review

The 2016 year was one of transition for Enviropacific Services, with the company returning its primary focus to remediation and petroleum industry activities. These traditional markets remain strong and we continue to prosper, with our core business units growing during the year.

The recent changes to the company are all about focusing on what we’ve been good at for many years. Enviropacific remains a specialist provider, offering high value skills and services.

Looking forward, our traditional markets will continue to deliver a robust pipeline of work. The ongoing renewal of former industrial sites and the long list of new infrastructure projects, particularly in Sydney and Melbourne, will provide excellent opportunities.

The nation’s petroleum industry continues to be in flux, and the changes to production and retail distribution models will also offer opportunities to our Petroleum business.

I would like to thank Enviropacific’s employees for their contribution to the company in 2016 and acknowledge their good performance in Safety.

May I wish our clients, suppliers and personnel a safe and happy Christmas, and I look forward to working with you again in 2017.

David Tucker
Chief Executive Officer

St Peters project progress

Enviropacific have recently secured a major project as part of the CPB/Dragados/Samsung Civil and Tunnel Joint Venture contract for the remediation of the former St Peters landfill site in Sydney.

The project is part of the new $18 billion M5 West Connex project involving the relocation of 450,000 cubic metres of contaminated landfill material to an engineered cell to accommodate the construction of the interchange and tunnel entry / exit point.

Enviropacific mobilised to site in October and have since begun construction of the 25 metre high waste cell which when complete, will span a 25,000 square metre footprint. In addition to these works, the entire site is to be capped with various materials, forming the basis for the remediation for use in follow-on construction. Enviropacific are also managing all asbestos operations across the site.

Prior to the commencement of capping, the installation of a gas and leachate treatment system will commence next week. This system is required to manage leachate materials for treatment and preparation for discharge.

This project is headed by our Major Projects group in Sydney, with Brett Nash, Senior Project Manager, Angelo Silvio, Site Manager and Lachlan Schumack, Senior Project Engineer leading operations.
