Clean Harbors, provider of environmental, energy and industrial services throughout North America, announced it has based a regional response center here to respond to environmental emergencies throughout the Gulf Coast region. The new facility also augments the company’s natural disaster response and logistical support services for the region, as well as supports existing field services locations in Louisiana and Texas.
The response center is a staging area and warehouse for resources and supplies that enables Clean Harbors personnel to quickly respond to land-based and off-shore spills and emergencies at industrial and chemical facilities, as well as petroleum drilling, refining, storage and transportation facilities.
The Clean Harbors New Iberia facility houses self-contained skimming watercraft of up to 30 ft in length, various response boats and landing craft, shallow water skimmers, and containment boom. Supply and tanker trucks, personal protective equipment, mobile communications equipment and other response assets are also kept at the ready. All equipment, including watercraft, and supplies are stored on trailers, trucks or packaged for immediate deployment anywhere in the Gulf.
