Project Description: Design, Fabrication & Supply of Replacement Blow Off Tank
Project Aims: To complete the project on time, within budget and with a high level of quality and safety
Status: Complete
Contract Duration:6 months


GEL were awarded the design and fabrication of a Blow Off Tank to replace an existing tank for Rusal Aughinish. The scope of works included a 3D survey of the existing tank, full design, supply of materials, fabrication on site and testing of the new tank. GEL also carried out the role of PSDP and PSCS. As the tank was a replacement for an existing tank, particular attention was given to dimensional tolerances to ensure the tank would fit in the existing location and match existing connections

The tank was designed for a pressure of 36.7kPag and temperature of 116oC. The tank is 8.8m diameter and 11.5m high, complete with internal tee, tori-spherical head and cone end. Nozzles on the tank ranged in size from 2” to 40” and also included a 3m diameter man-door.

GEL’s extensive experience ensured that the tank was completed within budget and on schedule, with zero accidents or incidents.
