Previously known as Willacy Oil Services (formed in 1989), Tradebe Refinery Services manufacture and operate a range of equipment for safe and efficient oily sludge quantification, removal and processing. Tradebe Refinery Services work worldwide with the majority of the major international and state owned oil, petrochemical, storage terminal and energy companies.
Initiated by increasing demands for improvements in Health and Safety performance and with limited, more expensive options for hazardous waste disposal, Tradebe Refinery Services has worked with the oil, petrochemical and energy sector to develop systems which reduce or eliminate man-entry into storage tanks and which are capable of simultaneously recovering any valuable components in the sludge for return to the system while minimising waste for off-site disposal.
The sludges formed by crude oil in storage, heavy fuel oil sludge and hazardous chemical waste present our industry with significant Health and Safety and disposal issues. It is in this area that Tradebe Refinery Services excels, providing bespoke solutions to difficult problems, developing services and products which are designed to improve Health and Safety and Environmental performance for both Client and Contractor, and always delivering a cost effective outcome.
In 2007 Willacy Oil Services became a division of Grupo Tradebe, a Spanish based environmental company. The company has now rebranded to become Tradebe Refinery Services. A direct benefit of this alliance is that we are now able to offer a range of complimentary waste management products and services including secondary thermal treatment of centrifuge cake, high temperature incineration, bio-remediation and waste water treatment technologies.
