Champion Technologies Ltd, Speciality chemical manufacturing company to the oil & gas industries - based in Aberdeen have almost completed a 2 year planned tank replacement program.
Their storage tank farm has now been almost completely refurbished with new Forbes GRP tanks for the storage of a wide variety of chemicals including Hydrochloric acid, Sodium Hypochlorite, Monoethylene Glycol & Acetic acid.
Tanks supplied include 1 x 12M3 acid blending tank + gas scrubber unit, 7 x 50M3 storage tanks, 1 x 30M3 storage tank (for Sodium Hypochlorite). Two further 50M3 tanks (for Triethylene Glycol) will be delivered in early May 2008.
All of the tanks supplied included access ladders, handrails & walkways and were delivered & installed by teams of Forbes site engineers.
The choice to use Forbes tanks again was a relatively easy decision - the existing tanks having been manufactured by Forbes in the late 1970's & early 1980's had been in continuous service since then with no problems at all.
