Delsan-A.I.M. managed and executed all aspects of the project, which included the abatement and disposal of all remaining designated substances and hazardous materials, such as asbestos-containing materials, polychlorinated biphenyls, residual oils as well as mercury-containing equipment.
As part of the project, Delsan-A.I.M. actively marketed mill equipment through its internet site and completed sales of several items, which included a Fuji King Debarker as well as eight refiners.
As the decommissioning work was completed, Delsan-A.I.M. proceeded with the demolition and removal of the specified buildings and structures by employing mechanical methods using a fleet of eight (8) full-size excavators equipped with a range of specialized attachments for both demolition and material handling operations, such as shears, grapples, buckets, pulverisers, hammers and magnets.
Delsan-A.I.M. entered into a contract with the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador (NL) to undertake the decommissioning and demolition of a former paper mill that was located along the eastern shoreline of the Exploits River in the town of Grand Falls – Windsor, NL.
The mill operated from about 1909 until 2009 when it was shut down. A hydroelectric generating facility, that was part of the mill operations, remained in-service during the course of the project.
