Date of publication: 31 August 2017 Print

A new 50,000 m3 tank is commissioned at Klin line operation dispatcher station (LODS) in Pensa Regional Department, Transneft Druzhba.

The installation of the vertical floating-roof steel tank (VFRT) No. 3 began in April 2016 as part of Technical Upgrading, Revamping and Overhaul Programme.

Revamping of the tank fleet of the station is intended to improve the oil storage reliability. VFRT 50000 will replace the roll-type tank that was dismantled in 2015

At present, LODS is preparing for dismantling of tank No. 4, instead of which 50,000 m3 VFRT will also be installed; its construction is scheduled to begin in 2018.
