At the PERN Fuel Depot in Małaszewicze, the complicated process of installing the roof on a new tank with a capacity of 32,000 m3 has just finished. The roof has a diameter of 43 meters and weighs 240 tons. The entire process, including preparations, lasted 7 days. This is an important milestone in this project. The tank is scheduled to be put into operation in the first quarter of next year.
Tomasz Salwa, project manager: “Carrying out the operation required a lot of preparation and involvement of high-class specialists, as well as equipment. The set of elements necessary to arrange the roof was transported by 40 trucks and 3 sets of specialist cars.
Installation of a roof of this diameter is a very big challenge for engineers, and the key condition for carrying out this operation is stable weather conditions, the wind force must not exceed 8 m / s.”
The general contractor of the reservoir is a consortium composed of: Naftoremont – Naftobudowa Sp. z o.o. with headquarters in Płock (Leader) and Przedsiębiorstwo “AGAT” S.A. based in Koluszki (Partner).
