10 sep CONSTRUCTION OF TANKPIT 19 AT KOOLE TANKSTORAGE MINERALS

In September 2015 Koole started the construction of Tankpit 19 at Koole Tankstorage Minerals, Rotterdam.

The first two foundations have now been completed. In total 1500 piles will be drilled to support 6 tanks of 30.000 m3 each.

Insulated tank roofs are prefabbed at a remote location to accommodate parallel building activities.

A state of the art manifold will connect the tankpit to a large variety of jetties in combination with pump speeds up to 5000 m3/hr.

When fully operational the tankpit will add another 180.000 m3 of fuel oil storage capacity to the facility in Rotterdam.
