Dormac wins tanking contract
Dormac won an order of R54m to build petro-chemical tanks at the Vopak Terminal in Durban based on its strong experience in engineering and fabrication. Vopak is the world’s largest independent tank storage provider.
8 fuel oil storage tanks will be erected at Island View, each being able to hold 8388 cubic meters of product. A total of 1200 tons of steel will be used.
The tanks have been designed by a Spanish company, Felguera, who will supply all the steel and specialized equipment for construction. Dormac South Africa will be the main contractor with Felguera as the technical partner.
An estimated 150,000 man hours has been allocated to complete this portion of the project using local labour.
