Vopak on Monday (1 April) said its Sebarok tank expansion project in Singapore has achieved an ‘engineering feat’ with Southeast Asia’s biggest tank lift.
The project oversees the addition of four new tanks with 67,000 cbm of storage to meet the marine gasoil capacity ahead of IMO 2020.
“Working with the main contractor; Hiap Seng Engineering, Vopak has adopted an innovative approach to tank construction by fabricating tanks off-site, minimizing activities in an operating terminal, improving safety & productivity, plus shortening project schedule by two months,” Vopak said in a LinkedIn post on Tuesday.
“The expansion to be commissioned by end 2019 aims to cater for handling of marine gasoil, strengthening Singapore's position as the bunker hub of choice with the flexibility of handling multiple fuels.
“Kudos to the team for delivering on this project safely and successfully.”
