Storage tank is an asset that deserves attention. These tanks can be fabricated of metal, either field erected or shop-fabricated, or non-metallic materials, such as polyethylene or fiberglass-reinforced plastic (FRP). They can be used to store petroleum products, chemicals or waste materials. The field of storage-tank inspections comprises both in- and out-of-service inspections of vertical and horizontal storage tanks, both above and below ground. A combination of techniques are used to provide a comprehensive condition report on the overall tank floor, shell, roof and structure, including engineering calculations in accordance with API 653 & 650 and other relevant specifications.
During the construction stage of Storage tank we can provide Design Review and Approval, Tank settlement survey, Civil work inspection and approvals, Welder Qualification Test and Welding Procedure Qualification, Other relevant NDT Test, Third Party Inspection and Certification of Pipe lines etc.
