We’re experts at cleaning all types of above ground storage tanks— from 400BBL lubricant tanks to 220’ Sour Crude and solid asphalt tanks. To highlight our range of expertise, here a few diverse tank projects we’ve successfully completed.
This tank required Proterra’s technical experience and abilities. We performed thermography and determined +7 feet of product inside the tank.
With our client’s tight work schedule, we were able to expedite the removal of product through door sheets, 4 vacuum trucks operating simultaneously and 10 entry personnel inside the tank.
With are proprietary tracking system, our client remained informed throughout the entire project. We finished ahead of schedule and under budget.
Proterra began this project by supporting the tank’s legs with engineered dunnage. From there, we effectively cleaned the the pontoon and topside of the external floating roof (EFR). We applied steam and used a hydro jet to to remove product from the legs and all tank components. Finally, we removed and disposed the primary and secondary tank seal. Despite several delays due to lightning, Proterra completed the project on schedule.
This project presented challenges from the get-go. The tank was set in a remote location with limit access to supplies, hospital and accommodations. The tank’s internal floating roof was compromised, so Proterra supported and cleaned it for inspection and repair. We removed the damaged seal to prepare for new installation—and we did it on schedule and under budget.
