Warm Water Tank Replacement

Water tank fabrication and replacement during planned annual shutdown

A warm water collection and distribution tank nestled deep within existing plant required replacement during a planned 5 day annual shutdown. MEL were engaged to detail a replacement strategy and manage the replacement project including reverse engineer tank construction details, preparation of scope of works and contractor management. The existing tank had reached the end of life due to corrosion, so a replacement carbon steel tank was fabricated and painted locally. Piping was rationalised, removed, and replaced to minimise outage works and enable the old tank to be lifted straight out and the new tank lifted straight back in.
