About the project

Pala performed turnkey decommissioning, cleaning and lift this 140′ x 56′ tall tank in order to repair the underside of the tank.  This unique repair strategy was executed since the tank required small specialty due to underside corrosion.  The scope of work included attaching the lifting mechanisims to the tank, installing lifting cables, elevating the tank to a level to allow mechanized equipment to remove and replace soil with clean sand and spot repair of the underside of a tank. 

This was the first tank lift performed in this facility of a tank which weight nearly one million lbs and is 140′ in diameter.  The project was completed safely, on schedule and with a high level of quality.
