The Federal and State Governments have  been key clients over the past 10 years.  In 2006, NAKOA abated Fifty-Six 25,000 gallon above ground storage tanks in Building 88 in Pearl Harbor for a Key Client.  The tanks were coated with lead based paints that needed to be abated because in order for it to be safely torched.  Because of the high lead content, workers were required to wear supplied air breathing apparatus.


3 Currently the company is remediating a 3 acre site for a private client that  was formerly used for scrap metal recycling.  Contaminants of concern include Petroleom Hydrocarbons, Lead and PCBs.  Several thousand cubic yards of material is potentially contaminated.  NAKOA is expected to have this property cleaned up by the end of the 2007.

NAKOA also completed remediating over 1000 lf of 32”, 18” & 16” Diameter pipes in the Red Hill Fuel Facility that was coated with Lead and Asbestos.  In addition NAKOA’s in-house forces coated the steel piping with a high tech industrial coating that will extend its service life significantly.
