Safety upgrade of tank pits 14 & 15

Odfjell Rotterdam commissioned Visser & Smit Hanab to upgrade the cooling and extinguishing water network for tank pits 14 & 15. The work for the 21 tanks included purchasing, engineering and constructing all GRE pipelines and valve components, as well as project management.

When inspecting the existing installation, it quickly became clear that the existing pipeline bridge was not suitable for the new piping. Consequently, the project scope was extended to include the design and construction of the new pipeline bridge. Visser & Smit Hanab’s in-house engineering department drew the design and made the calculations, while sister company Van Hattum en Blankevoort installed the anchor pilings onto which the rack was placed.


The project was completed to our client’s full satisfaction.
