  • ­The 13 tanks have a total capacity of 335,000 m3 and a total weight of more than 7,000tons
  • ­IVT provided in-house engineering and procurement from top-tier European suppliers
  • ­The execution of erection works have been significantly reduced due to the use of hydro jacks and horizontal welding machines

Results

  • The remaining scope of the mechanical and piping works as well as the E&I scope will be finalized and delivered during Q1 2020
