Managing NORM

Managing NORM in Bunbury

The scope was to provide radiation monitoring and mentoring to this client during the demolition of the Iluka storage tanks out in the outharbour port of Bunbury. The tanks were used for storing mineral sand products before shipping to overseas markets.

The mineral sand products had a radioactive signature, hence Radiation Professionals Australia were engaged to provide radiation oversight during the demolition program.

This involved personal monitoring of employees involved with the demolition campaign using recognised monitoring techniques. All demolition material from the tanks was checked for contamination before it was sent of site for scrap.
