Project description

Plasticon Composites International Contracting B.V. designed and supplied 3 storage tanks for chemical storage at the Borregaard site in Sarpsborg, Norway.

Due to the fact that on site transport was not possible, and there was no option for on-site winding, the largest tank (2.000 m3) was produced by PCIC in segments in the Netherlands and shipped to Sarpsborg in Norway. The segments were assembled on-site at the final location. This tank has a volume of 2.000 M3, a diameter of 12.6 mtr and an overall height of 18,6 mtr. 

The other tanks were completely assembled and shipped to Borregaard site for final installation. One tank has a volume of 1.000 M3, a diameter of 9,1 mtr. and an overall height of 17,5 mtr. The other tank has a volume of 400 M3, a diameter of 7 mtr and an overall height of 11,8 mtr.
