    Helping Shell to comply with European regulations

    RSK is part of Shell’s Global Environmental Services Strategy to monitor soil and groundwater at its retail service stations across Europe. We successfully retained a Europe-wide master services agreement in 2015 that added Austria to our monitoring network and since then, we have been diligently working with Shell to ensure its service stations comply with national regulations.

    Since 2015, RSK has been the primary contractor during the disposal and remediation of Shell sites in Austria, including comprehensive monitoring of up to 20 wells every 6 weeks. Contamination from a former fuel station in Aspang, Austria, exceeded national thresholds. Owing to the complicated nature of the contamination, the involvement of the authorities and residents’ concerns, Shell asked RSK to take charge of the site assessment. Our investigations showed that soil and groundwater contamination extended 1–5 m below an adjacent road and private properties. We installed a treatment system to lower the groundwater level and protect the private properties from groundwater migration. The final remediation included excavating the soil below the former fuel station and road adjacent to the private properties. About 10,000 t of the material was disposed of as hazardous material and we reused 10,000 t as fill.
