As leaders in engineering bulk storage tanks, Esso Australia engaged Brockman’s specialists for the Esso LIP Tank Rehabilitation Program, which will ultimately upgrade their crude oil storage facilities and capacity.

Through our role as mechanical subcontractor, Brockman undertook design, fabrication, construction, maintenance and repairs on Esso’s crude oil storage tanks.

With rigorous quality control standards and in a tight timeframe, our team delivered the full floor replacement including new annular plate ring - in accordance with latest API standards and Exxon Mobil Global Practices.

Our role included:

  • Civil works: Existing foundation replacement including repairs of concrete ring wall
  • Mechanical works: floor replacement, roof repairs including rolling ladder
  • Electrical Works: Tank grounding upgrade, tank mixers replacement and switchgear overhaul

In keeping with Brockman’s commitment to innovation, we provided additional value for our client through the use of the most cutting edge and safest tank jacking system and automatic welding processes.

We are proud of our quality and safety record on this nine-month project, our crew of 20 recording no major incidents or accidents.
