Remediation of soil
We offer a wide range of remediation methods as well as solid expertise in the restoration of contaminated land areas. We select the soil remediation method according to the substances that caused the contamination, the substances' level of concentration, the size of the area, the nature of the soil and the risks associated with remediation.
In all-inclusive projects, Fortum is responsible for the successful completion of the work from start to finish on a turnkey basis.
Contaminated soil at an industrial site, old service station, landfill or sawmill, for example, often decreases the value of the property or jeopardises the environment
We can handle all phases of the cleansing project from the demolition of any old buildings on-site, water treatment, excavation and transport of the soil mass, to the utilisation of the treated mass and the construction of infrastructure in the area.
