Commissioning and testing of internal storage tank floating roofs

In order to significantly reduce the emission of light hydrocarbons into the atmosphere and correspondingly reduce product loss, the management of Black Sea Terminal has decided to equip their storage tanks with pontoons, or so-called internal floating roofs.


From January 2018, four sets of such pontoons were purchased and delivered to BST for installation in the light oil storage tanks of numbers 15, 17, 20 and 22.


Currently, the installation work and commissioning of the internal floating roofs have been completed. The tests were carried out with the participation of the representatives of the installation company. The results of the testing have been positive. No significant leakages have through the membranes and seals have been observed during the loading and offloading process. All installed internal floating roofs have been activated after successful commissioning.
