Safer offshore chemical tank, DNV 2.7-1 certified

 

In response to recent industry trends and following close discussions with key customers to listen to market requirements, Suretank has developed a new range of low profile tanks of various capacities. The new design optimises tank capacity within the offshore frame, whilst keeping the height below 1.8m which is an international threshold for working at heights.

The design includes many new features including a unique top & bottom design which provides full drainage, vessel fully removable for maintenance and a new stacking arrangement which is compliant with the latest industry requirements (including DNV 2.7-1, 2013).

The new design is easy to clean and allows clear access and visibility to all valves and fittings. The foot-print is ideal for shipping in a standard 40’ container, with 4-way fork pockets available depending on customer preference.

Delivering global customised tank solutions

I was recently involved in heading up a project with one of our customers, Halliburton, in Asia which required us to engineer and install a range of highly customised tanks for an on board modular stimulation plant in Kakinada, India.

It was a challenging project for us but one that we were able to deliver on successfully because of the engineering expertise that we have globally across all of our manufacturing sites. The tanks, which included a lined acid transport tank for transporting full strength hydrochloric acid, custom designed dual compartment lined mixing tanks and large brine and gel mixing tanks, were manufactured in our sites across China, Thailand and Ireland.

Dealing with one supplier for all the tanks simplified the process for the customer and because all of our products are manufactured to DNV 2.7-1 standards we could assure them of the quality on all the products.

The tanks had a host of special requirements and the success of the project was because of our people in all of our locations. Three factories and our engineering design team at head office were involved. They listened to what the customer wanted; developed and modified the different equipment from each factory and delivered premium quality assured products.

We have already started work on our next project with Halliburton and as always will aim to deliver the same level of engineering expertise and innovation.

New offshore container stacking system

New offshore container stacking system

Suretank has developed a new stacking design which is being rolled out following several incidents in the field. Safety in the offshore oil and gas sector is our principal driving force at Suretank and so we have made modifications to the design of the padeye to avoid the potential for snagging.

As with all of our products, the designs have been modified and agreed with DNV and comply to the latest DNV 2.7-1, (2013) code.

The ability to stack offshore tanks and containers is crucial to our customers given the space constraints and so it is important to point out that the modifications we have made will not inhibit this, the key, as with all of our work is that it makes the practice safer. The new padeye designs will be present on all new Suretank products including cryogenics tanks, helifuel tanks and the full range of offshore containers.
