Work commences with the sampling, PCB testing, and subsequent pump out of non-hazardous transformer oil.

  • If the PCB content is hazardous, we bring in our preferred Haz. Partner to handle this.

  • AMS handles all residual oil safely, (pumped into our OSHA-approved portable storage containers), for safe recycling.

Our proprietary procedure allows us to disassemble each transformer where it sits.

  • This includes units in oil containment areas.

  • This includes de-energized transformers in live substations.

  • No obstacle is too large to overcome.
