A new tank with a volume of 50,000 m3 was commissioned at the Klin line operation dispatcher station of the Penza Regional Directorate of Transneft Druzhba.
The construction of the vertical floating-roof tank (VFRT) was launched in September 2018 as part of the technical upgrading, revamping and overhaul programme of the company to replace the decommissioned tank of the same volume.
The specialists installed automation, grounding, fire extinguishing, irrigation and electrochemical protection systems.
Also installed were process pipelines. Power supply networks and a production waste and storm water sewage system were laid. Gate valves, lightning rods and searchlight towers were installed.
