DAMAGE ASSESSMENT

Dominica Coconut Products

a Colgate Palmolive Company

Due to the extensive rainfall brought by Tropical Storm Erika from August 26th to 27th, 2015, a total of up to 450.0 mm of rainfall recorded over the two-day period greatly affected the industrial plant and tank farms. PENDEC was commissioned to undertake a damage assessment of the facilities to analyse the following: 

  • the extent of any structural damage to walls of the tank farms

  • the extent of repairs needed and practicality of carrying out those repairs and,

  • Recommendations for flood mitigation measures for tank farms and general plant.
