Guide Outlines Best Practices For Double Concrete Tanks
The Engineering Equipment and Materials Users Association (EEMUA) Publication 207 “Double Concrete Tanks for Liquefied Gas: Guide to design, construction and operation” aims to define best practices for engineering tanks -- storage facilities that will be not only safety critical, but also could be critical to safeguarding a part of the national infrastructure for many countries around the globe.
The guide's authors comprised representatives from EEMUA member companies, such as BP, ExxonMobil and Shell, together with representatives from engineering construction and inspection organizations, such as AF CryoTank, Arup, Lloyd’s Register, Technip and Whessoe Oil and Gas.
"For an owner who has elected to adopt the double concrete concept, EEMUA 207 will be invaluable," says Derek Hill of Foster Wheeler Energy Limited, a member of the authoring group. "The cost of producing a specification for a tank from scratch is reduced to simply reviewing EEMUA 207 and possibly adding their own preferences."
