Design & Fabricate 2 X 270,000 Litre Fuel Storage Tanks

Project Details

Pructon undertook the design and construction of two blending tanks to hold fuel oil at the Northern Oil site in Gladstone. The tanks had a 270,000-litre holding capacity, and the project included associated pipe work.

The tanks were fabricated and painted at the Pructon Gladstone mechanical workshop facility and transported to the site, where they were lifted into position. The project included 500 metres of associated pipework and spooling much of which was fabricated in our workshop, and additional lengths of site run.
