Tank Storage Erection: Summary Part 1.

The project took place in Pulau Indah for chemical plant expansion. The duration for the completion is around one year, starting with the piling and closed with a final inspection from BOMBA and the client. I only focused most on mechanical works above than other works.

So here it is.

Sorry I have to skip the civil works for tank foundation, since I don't have the pictures; it is all kept in the memory card which I sent to the main office. I told them to post it, but they didn't.

The civil works for tank foundation was mostly piling, and then followed with reinforcement bar, and finally the concreting. So, from here, let's move to the first picture.

That’s a large project to use so many storage tanks! Chemical plants do need a lot of storage tanks to store their chemicals and keep these from harming the surrounding area. For maximum safety, it is best for a chemical storage tank to be galvanized and have 3/16’ in multiple layers to prevent contamination.

Initially the plant owner only want to build 7 numbers only. In the end, they decided to build smaller but practical tank storage up to 14 nos. It means that they can store wider selection of chemical liquids. Having completed this project sure does add more understanding to the mechanical engineering field.
