About the project
This unique project was a replacement of a tank seal while the tank remained in service and with product in the tank. The tank could not be decommissioned since it was a critical tank to the plant, yet the facility. Pala replaced the primary and secondary seal system of a floating roof tank during the day while the tank was put back into service that night. Crewmembers worked using supplied air and non-sparking tools due to the product levels in the tank. This project was completed safely given hazardous conditions and extreme heat.
