The chlorate electrolyte storage tank will be delivered to Oulu and this intermediate product tank will be used to ensure product supply to AkzoNobel’s Nordic customers. The storage tank doubles the current storage capacity with its 8-meter diameter and 10-meter height and it is made of titanium. After demanding transportation, the ready-made tank needs only to be lifted to its final position, which ensures quicker installation on site.
Titanium is a challenging material for structures on this scale, but West Welding’s facilities and processes make the manufacturing possible. Projects like this are familiar to us as West Welding is specialized in manufacturing demanding structures and using special materials of this kind.
