Share Article

Basic Concepts continues to have Environmental Spill Containment Products deployed on all seven continents with the most recent Sentry Quickberm installation at a scientific research site in Antarctica.

Patented Quickberm Secondary Containment at Antarctic Site

The berms that Basic Concepts has supplied for secondary containment in Antarctica remain a flagship example of our commitment to providing the highest quality, most durable secondary containment berms on the market. This project is a source of pride for our company and we are thankful to have the opportunity to demonstrate just how durable our products are.

The spill berm pictured was constructed of heavy-duty 32 oz. polyurethane with an 18" tall wall that is constructed to withstand the harsh environment and sub-freezing temperatures of the polar region. The Quickberm was designed to provide secondary spill containment for a 10,000 gallon fuel bladder. The site has two 10,000 gallon hydrocarbon bladders requiring two spill berms.

Mr. Taube, the original project manager for the site, commented upon deploying the two spill berms: "… the berms were a breeze to set up and looks like they are going to work out well." After well over two years in service, the spill berms have performed so well that additional spill berms have been purchased including the latest ordered July 24, 2008.

Lee Hill, the territory sales manager for Basic Concepts, stated "The berms that Basic Concepts has supplied for secondary containment in Antarctica remain a flagship example of our commitment to providing the highest quality, most durable secondary containment berms on the market. This project is a source of pride for our company and we are thankful to have the opportunity to demonstrate just how durable our products are."

Basic Concepts' Environmental Spill Containment Products have been proven in the harshest environments. The ecosystem of the polar region is vulnerable to oil spills, so when the need arose Basic Concepts is who was entrusted. Basic Concepts' engineered spill containment berms and related products can be customized to solve almost any customer requirement. Remember that Sentry is always on guard against environmental oil spills.
