We handle complex contamination and deliver a cleaner environment
For more than 20 years, Arkil has acquired a high level of expertise in soil remediation, and we have significant experience of working with several different clean-up techniques.
Arkil Miljøteknik specialises in in-situ remediation projects in which the soil is washed directly without extensive digging.
In connection with construction, foundation work and tunnelling projects, Arkil Miljøteknik also performs groundwater lowering for other Arkil divisions. Arkil's groundwater lowering division has many years of experience and expertise in establishing both small and large systems designed to keep excavations dry when working below the natural water table. Arkil Miljøteknik has traditional groundwater lowering equipment at its disposal, as well as other equipment used for both drilling and water purification systems.
We develop new cleaning methods for contamination
We offer effective methods for contamination clean-up or remediation measures, regardless of the type and extent of contamination, and even if contamination seeps in under nearby buildings. The disposal and deposit of sludge and bottom sediment poses an increasingly challenging problem for port authorities in Denmark.
Many ports in Denmark have deposited sludge in rinse basins near the coast, which, due to the soft harbour bed or great depths, can be difficult to encase and seal using traditional methods. Arkil Miljøteknik has therefore developed a special "sludge mix" technique in which the sludge is stabilised by adding cement, which gives it the same consistency as clay. The contaminated sludge is then encapsulated. Arkil also uses cement stabilisation in other building projects where there are problems with marshy soil or soft base soil conditions.
Track bed analysis
Arkil Miljøteknik has specialised in studying the track bed beneath the Danish railway network. The research is carried out using our own track-operated equipment and specially developed drilling gear, which allows us to take core samples of chippings and from the underlying layer, as well as to test the environment for contamination. Furthermore, the equipment is well suited for geotechnical drilling and filtered drilling operations. Arkil Miljøteknik also has ground-penetrating radar equipment that can be used to detect hidden concrete structures and mains beneath the track bed.
