Ecoserv, a Lafayette-based industrial and oilfield waste management company, has invested about $12 million to open its Marine-Enviro Center, or Superdock, at Port Fourchon. The 30-acre site with 1,600 feet of dockside frontage, is larger than most at the port. It provides offloading of exploration and production waste materials and features traditional and automated cleaning of boats, barges and marine portable containers.

Offshore support vessels deliver virgin materials, such as drilling mud and completion fluids, to offshore rigs and return carrying waste products. At its Superdock, Ecoserv offloads the waste products and cleans compartments in the boats and barges to return them to service as quickly as possible. The site also processes other types of waste, including naturally occurring radioactive materials (NORM).

Its line of cleaning robots, Industrobots, is used at the dockside facility. Industrobots are ideal for hazardous conditions, including confined spaces, such as tanks and storage compartments.

The Superdock is an integral “link in the chain” of Ecoserv’s environmental services, Lacoste added. The company operates facilities across south Louisiana and in east Texas.
