Bulk Chemicals

The client had a non-compliant chemical tank farm that supplied their key central processing area. This had to be decommissioned and removed but only after the new system was installed, commissioned and tested. The new system comprised of a new 29m3 bulk caustic tank in a recently installed tank farm and drawing out bulk Nitric Acid and Sodium Hypochlorite tanks, with a 200m run along a pipe-bridge.
