Suretank Brazil, the renowned global manufacturer of offshore chemical tanks and containers, has recently unveiled a new 5000 I portable offshore tank for Brazil’s petroleum industry giant, Petrobras. As per reliable sources, the customized tank is suitable for expansible products in accordance with the IMDG code for safe shipment of hazardous goods and materials by water on vessel.
The 5000 I T7 classified tank, named as TK5000BR, comes with reduced operational costs, longer lifetime guarantee, additional safety enhancements, and a lower initial cost. Moreover, the environmentally efficient tank is said to be suitable for 99% of all chemicals utilized in offshore activity in Brazil. According to analysts, this characteristic of TK5000BR makes it one of the most significant containers to facilitate the transportation of hazardous materials manufactured by bulk and specialty chemicals industry players.
Sources reveal that the latest tank has been designed to guarantee a nominal capacity of 5000 I (with a maximum tank volume of 5310 I) and meets all of the regulations required from international oil firms operating in Brazil. In addition to this, the tank ensures minimal disposal requirements and costs as it allows complete discharge with zero product loss.
As per reliable sources, the tank’s AISI 316L barrel, when integrated with hot dip galvanized split-bolted frame, ensures low refurbishment and maintenance costs and an extended lifetime. Moreover, TK5000BR has been designed specifically to comply with local trailer requirements which allows it to ensure freight savings of up to 25%.
Speaking on the development, Chief Executive Officer of Suretank Latin America, Marco Pfeifer was quoted stating that the launch of TK5000BR is a remarkable development for the overall offshore market. He further stated that the concern regarding maximum filling compliance not allowing nominal capacity guarantee is not restricted to Brazil alone and this can lead to noncompliance of safety standards or loss in volume.
