Alyeska Pipeline Service Company in cooperation with the United States Coast Guard, State of Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation, Joint Pipeline Office and the Prince William Sound Regional Citizens Advisory Council conducted a Summer Valdez Marine Terminal Exercise. Bell Tech representatives conducted tactic VMT-WM-7B Large Vessel Decontamination using a 39 foot landing craft equipped with the Bell-Vac system demonstrating on Barge 500-2. Several clean and capture tools were displayed and representatives answered questions regarding operations, capabilities, procedures, limitations as well as deployment scenarios and response times.

During the 2011/2012 winter season in Alaska, the City of Valdez received over 450 inches of snow. During the spring months the melting accumulation caused a multitude of spills as the snow and ice shed from roofs. This snow-shed tipped over above ground heating fuel tanks and caused damage to the associated appurtenances thus contaminating the surrounding snow and soil. Bell Tech representatives responded and reclaimed heating fuel from snow and soils using the Bell-Vac process which proved to be an effective and non-intrusive means to restore the property without harming the vegetation and using machinery excavation methods to collect and dispose of contamination. Using the steaming and vacuum process, the snow along with the contamination was melted and collected for filtering rather than expensive soil disposal or thermal treatment.

Bell Tech mobilized a response trailer from Mobile, Alabama for the purposes of technology transfer. During the response, representatives tested and fine-tuned procedures associated with the decontamination of distressed vegetation and river debris. This also provided an opportunity to address another response scenario utilizing a form of UTV/ATV including small trailers to mobilize the Bell-Vac response equipment to areas inaccessible to vehicular traffic.
