This project was to provide the infrastructure for three new steel fuel storage tanks for Nustar at their existing storage terminal in the port of Grangemouth, and comprised heavily reinforced concrete tank plinth bases constructed on piled foundations with a surrounding concrete containment bund wall.
The main elements of construction included:
The work was subject to rigorous procedural checks to ensure quality, safety and environmental standards were maintained within this petro-chemical environment with the additional challenge of the live, operational docks location.
Specific features of the construction included:
Extensive programme coordination and liaison was undertaken with follow-on contractors engaged on tank the erection, to open-up work fronts and ensure Nustar production and in-to-service dates were met.
The overall project involves the off-site fabrication and installation of a new linkspan structure at Oban Ferry Terminal for client Caledonian Maritime Assets Ltd (CMal).
