Alexandra Golubovic Announced as an ‘Environment and Energy Leader 100’ Award Recipient

This week at the Environmental Leader and Energy Manager Conference (ELEMCON), Diakont’s own Alexandra Golubovic was announced as an ‘Environment and Energy Leader 100 (E+E 100)’ award recipient. The ‘Environment + Energy Leader 100’ award is presented to individuals who are driving their companies, and environmental protection, sustainability, and energy management, forward.

 

Alex successfully led the first inspection of a large aboveground jet fuel storage tank while it remained filled and in-service, using the world's only Class I Division 1 Hazardous Location certified inspection robotic system, the Diakont Stingray. The use of this inspection technology reduces the risk of fuel leaks, while also reducing the cost and greenhouse-gas emissions associated with traditional methods. 

 

In completing this project successfully, Alex needed to identify and address all potential hazards associated with inserting and operating a robotic system inside a refinery storage tank containing over 4 million gallons of flammable jet fuel. This process included the development of detailed procedures, training team personnel, and designing required liquid and vapor containment, among many other tasks.

 

While on-site for the inspection, Alex not only led the field service team during setup and deployment operations; she was also the primary robotics operator.

 

Congratulations Alex! Keep up the great work. Thank You for representing Diakont and our phenomenal Energy Services team!
