Boundaries pushed on big tanks

Brockman Engineering has completed its largest ever oil storage tank, at one of the most complex hydrocarbon refineries in Australia.

The Viva refinery in Geelong produces about half of Victoria’s petrol and other fuel needs and Brockman Engineering’s tank maintenance and refurbishment program is helping Viva to provide the highest quality products and service to its customers.

“This project has seen us push the boundaries” said General Manager Chris Bishop.

“We undertook the design fabrication, erection, surface treatment and insulation of our largest ever crude double deck, floating roof, oil storage tanks - standing  54metres wide and 19.5metre tall, with a volume of 45Mega litres”.
